    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...
