    Hello,
    So recently purchased a profilux for my reef tank. But i also have a “High tech planted aquarium”. Carbon injected, high light.

    For the sake of simplifying the sheer number of independently controlled equipment i have. How many LB2 day light would you suggest for a standard 55 gallon in this scenario. Couldnt find more than spectrum data for these lights.

    *Edit of the 120cm length bars as its a 48” tank.
