Trying to figure out lighting for my frag system, two 30g breeders. What do you all think?

Two 36" ATI 6x39w T-5 Fixtures

or

Two 250w Metal Halides with T-5 Actinic supplementation


Thanks,

my vote goes for 2 radiums. You'll get growth since they're going to be very close (hopefully in GOOD reflectors), and the bulbs will produce sick coloration.

Try one and one. Be the guinea pig. See which lights are truly better. Take one for the team Mike.
