    Hi guys

    i am looking for a lighting unit that has 2 t5's and one 150watt metal halide, i also dont want it to cost an arm and a leg.

    if possible is there units that the t5s and the mh are on seprate power lines and

    an extra bonus would be moonlights.

    Does anyone know of someone that custom builds units?

    Saw one exactly like you want the other day. Only problem is the price. Its a aqua medic but costs R 3 800-00. It has a 150MH and two T5 with seperate power cord going to T5 and MH. I am looking at one myself. Its a great looking unit too.

    Johan, contact Reef Inmates. They build some wicked lighting units. Tell them what you want and they will do it for you. Im getting a 10*54W T5 pendant built by them as we speak.
