    too much light

    Cory , that is a ton of light (way way too much) for a 20 gln tank, you can run that tank with 1 bank of light ( 1 x 65 watts ) & still grow anything or you can change your tank to a larger volume with a 30 inch foot print, just my thoughts.
    Regards

    Thank you Charlie and Frolicsome_Flora. I don't think I would be using the other bulb anyways (its actinic) so I think that shrinks me down to 65 watts.
