hey folks, few years back i had a 55g planted tank with about 5ish wpg from a coralife pc fixture. tank was fairly high maintenance and obviously had co2, ferts etc. since then i moved to a reef tank with halides but i'm now in the process of setting up a 75 gallon planted again.

my question is, i'm just not sure how t5ho compares with pc's or halides and looking for advice. i'd rather have enough light from the get go than have to add more lights later so is 6x 54w way over lit or what? just trying to decide between the 6 or 4 bulb arrangement.

any and all help appreciated...and even better if you have a link to your tank for example pictures of one or the other, that would be great!

cheers,
darryl

thanks Ravi, i'm looking more along the lines of whether i should go for a 4 or 6 t5 bulb arrangement on this tank. is 6 x 54w an insane amount of light and what are other peoples experiences? i'm sure 4 x 54w will work but like i mentioned earlier...i'd rather purchase enough light to start with than have to add more later.
