    Giesmanns are one of the best. You will really be amazed at the difference! Those current tubes make things look washed out

    no lol. Not the whole unit! Just get the tubes :) .. You have 8 T5's .. gonna be crappy but you can change the crappy white globes for actinic plus tubes. Those have blue mixed in, really nice colour. They are like R300 each but they last long

    @Marine1 .. Loki fitted giesmanns to his 24w units like yours. Check out his cube, although the pics dont capture the proper colour, but it looks beautiful in person!

    You should ask nemos janitor or Loki about the selection of tubes when you want to change the rest :)
