The lights I linked to are not HO T5 bulbs--they are 21 watts each---do you still think that is drastic overkill on lighting?

This is the name of the light that you linked to:
Coralife F/W T-5 Aqualight Double Strip Light-36"

This is a T5 but you're correct, it doesn't say "HO". I dug around to see the tube stats and the spectrum graph for each tube seems OK, but there is no indication of lux/lumens. So I can't surmise on the intensity. It will certainly be enough, but may or may not be too much.

Are you getting this in a local store where you can return it for exchange if needed? I've done this, as lighting can be difficult to assess until you see it on your aquarium, and for a few days.

Byron.

Yeah, a local store has them in stock--actually they have the 30" in stock that I wsa going to try on my 29g first. It is going to be a little while before I get the 30 gallon up and going.
