    After seeing T5's on a LFS tank tonight, I have decided this is the way I want to go. I want to be able to keep the highest light sps's on the bottom of the tank down the road. My tank is a 75gal AGA RR. Will I be ok with the 6 bulb fixture? My tank is 20" tall and 18" wide. Will the 8 bulb...

    :banana:After much research and cost analysis I purchased an 8 bulb T5 Current USA fixture. My set-up is a 16 Y/O 75 gallon Oceanic Tank/Stand that had a 48" single standard fluorescent bulb. When reef tank build began I purchased a Coralife PC fixture. :doh: This of course was before I found...

    Im upgrading from a 55 to a 90. This is my stand now It's built for a 55/75. How dumb would it be to try and fit a 90 gallon tank on there? I have about 60 pounds of rock and about 40...

    I've been doing some research ono reef tank lighting and have read on a number of sites that 6 54w T5's are equeal to a 400w MH. Is this true? what woul dbe the difference? If true why woul danyone be using MH at all? T5's would be cheaper and cooler. Can anyone confirm this? I'm would assume...

    Hello again all :nuts: Ok, I am still looking at the 72 Bowfront that is 48 x 18 x 22. If I was to go to T5 lighting, what would you suggest and how many bulbs do you think i would need? And would I be able to keep corals that require more light than PC's ? I am currently running 2 PC's 1...

    I have a 4 bulb fixture for my 75 gal from Marineland. If I want to stick with a 4 bulb fixture, is the Tek superior to Marineland because of the reflectors? I have a BTA.

    I have a 48x12x12 tank that I would like to use for coral propagation. Can I propagate sps corals without the use of mh's because of it's shallowness. I have to go out and purchase additional lighting for this tank and would like it to be as inexpensive as possible. I have a new daughter who...

    Hi, I would like to upgrade my lighting. My tank is 36Lx18Wx24H. I would like to keep LPS. Most of the ones I am interested in say moderate light is required (ie. frogspawn, candy cane..). I currently have a 2x96watt PC fixture. My question is what lighting would you reccommend? I was looking...

    I've heard that you need MH or T5 for SPS corals. Has anyone had any luck with less? I have a 2 x 96w pc fixture and I'm adding a 2 x 65w fixture to my 75g. How do I stand as far as being able to keep sps? If I added 2 HO T5's to that would I be a lot better off or do all the lights have to be...
