I have a 40 gallon breeder. In need of a light. I am thinking of a Coralife Aqualight High Output T5 Dual. Is that too much light for my tank?
This is a new setup, doesn't even have the water in it yet. I plan to add a Convict, Fire Mouth and a Electric Blue JD. Black Gravel if that matters. I don't want LED. I went down that road, wasn't happy with the results. I want to go with T5. I was thinking that a nice T5 light with black gravel the JD would show some nice colors.

Thanks in advance!

I have to ask, why not LED?

I think that is a lot of light for a 40g breeder, and for the money you can get a lot better light - especially when you factor in the cost of bulbs.
