Or to much flow on it or both. i have 2-31 watt t5s on a 29 gallon tank for lighting. i have a flame scallop and it still looks fine. when the water turned crystal clear after 2 days of getting it i turned the...

    36wx4 $179 or 96wx 2 $79, While the t5s will be brighter even at the lowerr wattage (with proper reflector), is it worth paying twice as much? I ran PCs before on small tanks with good results 5 years ago when t5 HOs were virtually unheard of. Now I come back to the hobby and all I here is pc...
