    Ok so after my dismal last pics, i must say myself they were by far the worst i have seen.
    I dug out my digital camera and tried, all the pics were taken on a normal fuji point and shoot with the on board macro setting, no tripod.
    Will try a fts soon just need to figure out how to get everything to fit in.

    Nice and sharp. One suggestion. Set the camera to a lower ISO so the pics aren't as grainy

    Warr i only run t5's, busy upgrading tho, still gonna stay with the t5's just going with another brand.

    at the moment i have the following

    2 x actinics
    1 x 20 000k
    1 x 8000k or 7500k cant remember
    2 x 10 000k

    I have run halides before, had three 150w on my old set up, blv 2 x 14k and 1 x 20k.
    Even tho the tank is still new, i am sold on the light sticks hey. The density of the light
    or the spread of the light is just more uniform.
    Dunno how exactly to put into words but i wont go back to halides in a hurry.
