Green is right. I love the old man at my lfs, but lets face it, he is the only one in town. If I sucseed, then I dont come back quite as often. If I fail, I am in there more regularly. This is why I got addicted to these posts. It is the best way to learn. Books are good but this is personal and great! I have a 55 gal and am looking to get 2 175W MH. Then supplement with some actins. If you go by the watts per gal rule then its over 6. But then I found that you have to watch the kelvin ratings on the bulbs for color and color growth.
