Doh! I always forget something in my posts.

Ferts - Greg Watson's following the EI dosing exactly.
DIY Yeast CO2
Plants - Different mosses, Rotala macrandra, Sunset Hygro, Ludwigia inclinata.
I don't plan on having any shrimp/fish for a few months after setting this up.
Basically it will be used to grow out some plants and try a few things out. And yes I will be going pressurized CO2
but not until I get everything going really well. The plants will help pay for that.
I had thought about
1x96w AH Supply - Lots of light but sub-par coverage. It's a wide tank.
2x96w AH Supply - TONS of light but maybe a bit too much.
2x55w AH Supply - Ability to stagger the lights but will still get low areas of light. Not a big fan of that.
These T-5 lights really catch my eye and seem to be a good choice. The bulb life is really nice as well and I'll be able to get full coverage.
May be going at it the wrong way....who knows.
