    Good idea could work. But if you had 2 of these it would work perfectly as lighting for my new build. Don't you maybe Have another laying around in storage

    Question, why would you want so much MH?combining the MH with T5 would be more than sufficcient for any livestock you need. I do have a spare T5 unit laying around, just need to twist the "blue" bulb connector 2gether and then you have 3 tubes 1m long of white and blue.

    Would be willing to part with it and come to a conclusive price if you are willing.

    Whats the total volume of the cube?What livestock are you looking at giving away with it?

    I guess so, but prefer more light than to little when it comes to SPS. :lol: Why would I want to part with livestock when im moving to a bigger setup too accommodate more. Cube is around 220-250L

    Haha, understand your concern, but with double the MH lighting you'll just be adding algae to ur tank more than anything else m8. Apologies, I thought for some reason you were selling live stock with the system. reason why I ask is caus i DONT want more livestock, perhaps a few corals.ok, ill do the MH and T5 for you for R1300 caus im not gna need it. originally wanted R1000 for the T5's alone. we take the price off ur cube and we both win.

    What you think?Will need to arrange a viewing

    Don't think to much light causes algae, more like to much phosphates and old bulbs does.
    Sure you can come have a look at tank.
    Do you have a pic of t5 unit and size? I'm building a 2m tank so need to cover some space.
    If you have a skimmer I might also be interested, but has to be rated for more than 600l.
