 Hey
 
 The  AquaZonic  T5HO  90CM  (4  x  12000K)  will  do  for  your  tank.  It  comes  in  2  Models,  One  which  has  all  white  tubes  and  one  which  has  2  white  and  2  blue,  go  for  the  one  which  has  all  white  tubes.
 
 Also  if  budget  permits  go  for  a  good  canister  filter  to  improve  Bio  Filtration  and  Water  circulation,  Thanks.

 Hi,
 
 All  looks  good  but  not  filter.....it  would  really  make  sense  to  go  for  a  canister...worth  the  extra  cost  for  this  size  tank.
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Hc  cuba  needs  good  lights,  good  co2  with  softwater  and  good  water  circulation  too.  800  Ltr/H   water  circulation  is  not  sufficient.  it's  better  you  buy  a  canister  and  dont  forget  about  dosing  ferts.  It  will  consume  more  Pottasium  and  Iron.

 6500k  Light  is  sufficient  for  planted  tanks.
