Does that change anything? Will the 10 gallon sump type thing and the fluval 305 be enough filteration for the tank? How do I figure out the par of my lights?

I just did some research and found out that this bulb is 5,000K... Right now you have a 34" long fixture on a 49" long tank. You might get away with just planting in the middle or low light plants on the sides of tank. I still have no clue if you have low or medium light. But for sure it's not high.

Your filtration should be good enough for 88g.

How much would it cost to get a fixture that would put.me at high light? I would still use my other 2 fixtures I just want to add another one.

You can get a 48" dual t5HO. fishneedit.com has some for less than a $100 but they are out of stock. At least this will give you an idea how much...

If I got this light would it just be overkill? Do you know another good website that would have them in stock?

I think so. Even with only that fixture. I bet it will have at least 2 different switches. So that all bulbs doesn't have to be on at the same time. Let me search for another place where you can buy fixtures like that...

If I get the 4 bulb fixture I might consider getting rid of my other T5 ho fixture. That means on the 88 gallon I would have 4 t5 ho bulbs and the marineland led. The led would not go the full length of the tank but I think that will be ok.
