Lighting help!

Bought this 48" light T5 but don't know what the wattage is. 233497919518adc8b546b9b4a2147121.jpg

 

I want to buy 4 t5's and not sure how much wattage each T5 should be.

 

Information that you'll probably need is:

 

Inhabitants:

softies (Kenya trees, Colts, Xenia, sinularia)

 

macro algae (various caulerpa, dragons breath, etc.)

 

Photosynthetic gorgonians

 

Tank is 18" tall.

 

The lights I found were 54w each. Is this too much?

Those AC adapters look to be for smaller LEDs being 6 and 12 volt output. As far as the 54 watt bulbs those would tend to be 48 inch T5-HO lights and at 18 inch depth and 4 54 watt bulbs you would be sitting pretty decent in the lighting department.

After looking at it, he's right. They probably are 54 watts.
