Don't feel bad Darren - you will get there at some stage - everyone goes through stages and upgrades at some stage! In the US T5's and even LED's are the latest craze! When people in the UK heard we are still hung-up on our metal halides, they scoffed at me! :)

Cool! WOW! Midasblenny - you sure have a LOT of T5's - is this all on ONE tank?

Calvin: Those reflectors are brilliant..... BUT Don't you have blue globes as well? Only the 250watt MH's?
