I can't comment on this specific fixture, but it might help others to do so if you could give the tank dimensions (length and volume especially), and if CO2 diffusion is planned [I saw the other thread on this, I have no experience with CO2 so won't be able to help there]. Generally speaking, HO emits too much light unless it is a fairly high-tech system with CO2.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

its your typciall 55gla 48' long pressurised c02 is planned for the tank to keep the algae under controll and ofcourse to speed the plants along.
