    I have a t5 unit on my freshwater tank as it used to be a marine tank. so i figured since most guys with marine tanks toss them after 6 months i could use it on my fresh water tank.

    And i forget to say size it is a 1.2 meter unit.

    @ziyaadb thanx dude just a pity on the distance

    1.2m t5 = 54 w, so if you want 1.2m tubes you want 54 w

    I also have quite a few 39W and 54W tubes - unknown age, but they still light up, which you can get for free.

    I stay near Brackenfell too..
