    Hello, I have a question about my T5NO light. i purchased it at homedepot says its a grow light.

    here are the specs
    Brand: Lithonia Lighting

    UPC: 784231246948
    Order Code: 206C17
    Dimmable: No
    Safety Rating: UL

    I want to know if placing this light on top of my 10gal will give me med lighting or leave it suspended 17 inches from my ada soil. I am using pressurized co2, i dose iron and k2so4 atm.

    Thank you.

    I really don't think you can go wrong either way here. How many bulbs?

    Yeah i think so....start ei dosing and keep everything the same. the only nutrient if u use i would worry about is nh4/ammonia/urea to cause more algae
