Hi

Read through entire thread now - Awesome progress - what was the main reason for moving to T5's over your LED's - seems you were getting great growth and coloring with the LED's?

thanks. I was happy with the leds as they were excellent units, but i still think t5 lighting is the best for sps, in terms of growth and pastel colour.

I wanted to build a hybrid unit but never got the time to get it done. so went hunting for a 39w unit which I finally found. I will post a pic of purple monti frag under ati t5. colour has just popped. if you have the right t5 unit and the right bulb combination its hard to beat. check rory's tank to see t5 results as well
