Where on earth did you read that 4-5 watts per gallon is
With modern, compact fluoresent lights and good reflectors, anything over
watts per gallon is too much

  I plan to set up a 90 gallon planted tank. It will have CO2 system, open 
top, and I plan to use power compacts. I was under the impression that I 
needed between 300 to 400 watts. So what your saying I only need 200 watts?  
Please elaborate.
  Thank you
