    Hi Guys looking to try out my new lights for the tank.

    Frags only not willing to fork out half a Grand on stuff that may die.

    What lights do you have? You profile says you have a 2ft tank? SPS is not just about light but also good water parameters. How long has this system been going for?

    What corals have you had in there so far? Please post a pic of the tank and filtration system. What is your nutrient levels like?

    Well, first, what type of frags are you looking for?
    SPS, or softies or leathers?

    On your system size, I doubt if SPS will be OK? Nano systems are more difficult to keep stable and water in excellent condition. Not saying it cannot be done.
    Also SPS normally require higher end lights. Like MH. You just specify full spectrum
    I assume all of them are 10000K. If you really want the best performance out og your globes, rather go for AquaMedic or Gieseman. Without reflectors they give more PAR than Reeftek with reflectors. They cost more, but you could be able to keep SPS.

    Softies, like leathers and Pincushions. Yes, they should be fine under T5. And even prefer less that perfect water conditions.

    I got 4 Pincushion frags growing under a PL tube 24W, so equal to half of your lightning, in a 3 foot tank.

    Please specify what type of frags you want.

    Kinda looking for anything here guys, specifically mushrooms, SPS was a thought, seems guys aren't fragging any right now, and my lighting may not be adequate.

    Have a couple of mushrooms that are doing really nicely, so rather keen.

    I have plenty Red, Blue and Green stripe Mushrooms for you. I have many sps frags all sizes and variety. Problem is me in Klerksdorp. I have a 30cm plus Moray Eel that needs a good home to.
