Ja its T8 not actualy for a tank it is to simulate the sun it's for a controled enviroment unit to study plant growth the growth chamber is about 2mx1m and will controle lighting temperature and humidity thinking of puting a nono in there to see what it does for photosynthetic corals

loving my new job this is one ov the medium sized units have other growth rooms about 2x3m with florecents covering the whole roof you can barly see the ceiling
