Thanks Alex.
Definitely Sunpower will do the job, and your lamp combo is good for blue tank club. If you want a "radium look", then add 440 or 470 nm blue LED strips at sides.

Hi Dom, can wait to see your gorgeous tank again.
I have been testing the Orphek PR156 LED in my frag tank for 6 months, and got very good growth and color. I plan to try 2x Orphek Atlantik with 2 Sunbrite 440 and 470 blue LED stripes in this tank. T5 or LED?.....find out soon.

Kinda quiet.. you guys went LED didn't you? Hehe
Just got a Sunpower 8X80w. I'm wondering if any changes over the last few years for bulb preference since the Coral + is newer. I went with:
B+
B+
Purple + <---(Probably should have just got a Coral + instead but will try out some different combos)
Coral +
B+
ATI actinic also have a Giessman actinic to try out.
coral +
B+
Not necessarily that order. But might ad a coral + or try a 6500 GE.

I can't remember if everything was in on this pick or not.
I picked T5 because my favorite tanks on here have been T5.
Also anyone know how to make my pics bigger?

I would get the Sunpower. The performance is so close to the Powermodule that I don't see the benefit of the price difference, unless you much prefer the look of the Powermodule. Me... I have a dimmable Sunpower and I just love it.
