Oh I wish I was.......
I am fed up with the colors, or lack of them with my 8x39w 10k t5's. Since I started the tank, I have used t5's. I get great growth, but the colors just don't pop like they do under 14k and 20k halides. Also, I have been able to debunk the myth that t5's do not heat up your tank, they definately do (until I bought a chiller ) Now I am looking at buying a halide hood gor my tank. I like options, but so far the only one I have is a coralife. I say this due to my tank being 46" long. The coralife will let you move the legs to almost any length for shorter tanks. Does anyone have any other hoods that may would work on my oddball 46" tank. Retros are out as I would have to build a taller canopy, mine is only 7" tall.
