    I use 4x 54 watts over the same area.

    More than enough.

    Hi Tom

    I can buy 4x54w.That is about 0.5w/1l as you recomend often.But what do you think about Reflexx model?4-6 tubes in 20cm/8 inch,no parabolic reflectors!!!I'm a bit suspicious about Reflexx l.Is he enough for 120wx60dx55h aquarium. Do you have experience with reflexx or something similar?Thanks.
