I remember you, welcome back.

When you say two 24-inch, does this mean a total of 8 tubes? Since these are 4-tube fixtures. I think that is way too much light unless you are intending diffused CO2, and even then it would likely be too much. I think you would be better with 48-inch tubes, two T5 max.
