    I think i've settled on T-5's for my 90. The small LED's ( $200 for 2 off eBay - yes chinese ) are great but don't know how to actually mount them as I can't hang. The better LED's in standard fixture are too pricey ( Orbit Marine Pro is $485 ) So T5's we go. The question is, I can buy a 6...

    I have a 90 gallon footprint Mixed Reef Tank that is 5 months old, with a 6 light 48" inch fixture. When replacing bulbs, should i only replace one at a time each week, or is it ok to replace them all at the same time? I am switching from Coral Life HO bulbs to ATI bulbs, 3 Coral Plus, and 3...

    It's time to replace the T5 bulbs. I have a 6 bulb Coral Life fixture. I'm considering Getting 3 ATI Coral Plus, and 3 Giesemann Mid Day's. What's your opinions on that bulb selection? It's my understanding the ATI coral Plus will be heavy on the Blue, and the Mid Days will be heavy on the...

    Just a quick question, I think. Should my t5 actinics be on at the same time as my metal halides. I start my t5's a couple hours before the metal halides and leave them on a couple hours after, is this correct? Thanks in advance for the response.

    Hi, i am currently running a dual 54w t5 fixture on my 55g. At first i thought this was too weak to support anything besides a couple soft corals, but recently i have noticed that a friend has been supporting several LPS and even an anemone with the same exact light. My question is would i be...

    4 bulb over driven (4x90W) or 6 bulb (6x54W). Assuming using all ATI bulbs, would one fixture be any better for a mixed reef setup than the other for a 90g? 48x18x24
