View Full Version : lighting question for 55

06/07/2006, 08:55 AM
Hey everyone
i was just wondering what type of lighting i should get
its going over a standard 55
i have access to buy either a 2xt5 actinic 2x150hqi setup or a 4xt5 setup
i know with the hqis i wont have to worry on lighting needs but i was just curious on the 4 t5's cause the electric bill is probably going to be higher with the hqis and if the 4 t5's are just as good then id rather get something that'll save me a little cash in the long run
both setups are going to run me around 300-350 but the hqi setup is used and the t5 setup will be brand new
im planning on sps mainly and no clams

4 T5's over a standard 55g should be great for SPS.

I would personally take the 4 T5's but either system will do fine.
