No problem Ketso, the subject in the link is appropriate to the post by the OP.

I'm having a bit of trouble understanding your lighting setup and what you are intending to do. Are you overdriving all of the bulbs, some of them, none of them? FWIW, you will need a bit more than the usually mentioned 1wpg for that sized tank. Can you clarify the lighting setup?
