Now that I've seen it, I myself would get a dual-tube T8 fixture, not a T5.

And a very nice aquascape for that sized tank too. Nice work.

Thank you It's a work-in-progress lol. Thinking of adding more of the giant vals and cabomba. Also that lone pennywort at the top isn't doing much for cover lol, so maybe a bit more of that too. Would an Amazon Sword work in the back too to fan out? I might try that smaller sword your recommended to for some mid-level plants.
