the day i hear what carbon deficiencies look like is the day i'll have an idea what "too much lighting" means
till then, ...
Nature, has more light than any planted tank, i'd guess easily 2x the most intense lighting on a planted tank, ... and could be as much as 10x those with a single T8 because they got the aquarium kit (all in one)
the most CO2 nature has is areas with heavy decomposition of old organics on the surface of the riverbed, ... and that's not guaranteed as often enough the places in nature that are getting the most light do not have trees & bushes blocking sunlight, ... nor do they have leaves from these trees and bushes to add to the substrate, to decompose, to add CO2.
do plants benefit from additional CO2, yes
do you have "too much light", ... i'm going to side with 'no' till someone can point out what a carbon deficiency looks like.
i have a 29gallon tank
4x 6500K bulbs
i am sure the plants could benefit from additional CO2, but nothing stops them from growing.
i'm contemplating 8x 6500K bulbs on a larger tank, ... the light fixture will be as wide as the tank
i'm not sure, i'm just contemplating it at the moment
