I have 130 watts on my 29. It is a lot of light so be prepared. Good steady CO2 and ferts will be a must.

think 4.x wpg is overkill for the 29g? I was looking at moving that 65w unit over to my 20g tank and figured that I might as well upgrade instead of just getting another 65w unit. What do you think?

4 wpg will be fun....if you like things to grow at the speed of light! But remeber, you can always put some 50/50 bulbs in there and slow things down. That is what I am doing on my 55, I have 2x96 watts and things happen FAST. I am very interested to see what happens with the 50/50s.

What is the difference in a 50/50 bulb and a normal CF bulb? I'm really leaning towards a 2x65 on the 29g and a 65 on the 20g. What do you think? Do you think I'd have to step up to pressurized CO2 soon after doubling the wattage on the 29g tank or would DIY be okay?
