Lighting question needs answer asap please

Hi all.

I have a standard 55 gallon with dual 24" canopys which holds 18" bulbs.

Obviously there are dark spots front to back and side to side.

Will the Coralife Freshwater Aqualight T5 Series - Double Linear Strip NOT ho fill in the gaps if I remove the original canopy and use these?

I would be going from 1/2 wpg to 1 wpg with this fixture. I know it will be brighter, but will the 2 bulb setup and the fact it is now a full 48" fill the aquarium from the darkspots?

Thanks,

Dan

More than likely it will but if you're just going to get NO bulbs, why not just go with a $4 shop light from walmart? No dark spots when I had one over a 55g

mfdrookie516, this is a show tank in the living room and all the shop lights
I seen are ugly and it has to sit on top of the canopy. My tank and canopy are oak trim.

I agree shop lights will do, but Im hoping the dual t5no should be enough for my needs.
