Haha just kidding! Here is my question: I have a 60 gallon Seaclear that I need to get lights for. What are the different brands of good T5HO lights? I know the Tek is good, but are there others? What would be a good amount of light for softies and LPS? I was thinking a 4x54w, but if I can go smaller (cheaper) I'm all for it:D

Thanks

Here's a link to a case study on all brands of T5's made in the last five years. Ordered by most affordable, and by most efficient.

if you want cheap and good t5ho, well, it usually wont happen. but if you want affordable and good t5ho lighting, check out www.aqualuxlighting.com. and do the DIY retrofits. not the tek stuff. while that does work well, ordering all the parts separately while using the CDR reflectors, you will end up with a price that you cant beat anywhere else for that kind of performance

Horkn, I would like to do that, but I dont have a canopy. Maybe my dad and I can build one. I like the open top, stream lined look.

well, it is really nothing special. if i had spent a bit more tiem on it it would be better. I wanted corals in my tank, and my canopy done. let me look through my pics for one...
