    I have a Hagen Glo 2x24w lighting unit on a aqua h20 140L tank. I couldn't get the actual glo bulbs so I took aquamedic. I know they're not that good but they were the right price at the time.

    My question is, would I be able to successfully keep what other people are keeping in their boyu 550's which have 2x24w PC lights? Are these types of lights basically the same? I know everybody says that PC lights are just T5's in a different shape but are there any performance differences?

    Just a little more info before you answer. My tank is 45cm high I think and the boyu is 67cm high.

    Thanx

    I was thinking mainly softies but maybe a hammer or torch for my little clown. So I should be alright by the sounds of it. Will keep the LPS far away from the softies. Thanks.
