    i managed to get my 150w aquamedic metal halide unit back that i had on my previous setup of about 5years back.i was completely happy with this unit as i only keep softies(previous setup had a medium clam that did well with this light unit as well).my dilemma is the fact that i`m worried about electricity consumption.when i was reefing last(about 5years back) electricity tariffs wasnt what it is today.could someone maybe set me at ease? how would the 150w MH compare to 4 t5s in consumption terms? any feedback will be appreciated.

    Watts are watts dude. whether you use a 150W halide or 4 X 39W T5s, the watts will be similar.
