    Hey guys. I'm fairly new to the whole lighting scene and thought I'd ask for some help before I placed an order to replace my 4x T5 HO bulbs. After having done a little bit of research around the site about what others have used for their 4x bulb combo, I think I have a general idea about what...

    I've been running my beginner tank for 1 1/2 years with a single 50/50 bulb - surprisingly, my softies have all done well. I was just given a T5 HO fixture with one 420 actinic and one 10,000K bulb - it's too long for my tank, so I'd have to hang it. My question is, should I use it instead of...

    I have a 55 gallon tank. I'm decing between what I want to go with, either stick to the quad T5 lighting I have now, or go with a 1W LED setup. I was wondering if you guys could take a look at these two and tell me which ones are the best options. Stick to what I have...

    Hello! This is my first post on this forum, so I guess a little background would help. Early in January I "inherited" my mother-in-law's 20gal reef tank. She had it up and running for about 10yrs, and finally decided she wasn't doing a good enough job anymore with it. Rather than sell it, she...
