To be honest with you,i cant answer that question.
My tank is currently running on 2*250W MH's and 4*39W T5's.
I sometimes feel i will get better colouration out of T5's.

ok sorry height is actually 600....what would i need now would you say?
Dorry Pets - Real Inc 8 x 39W Light Fixture
would something like this work for me...this unit should be 4ft right? my tan dimesnions are 1800x600x600
Looks great. Personally love the T5 OPTION but the globes need replacing every 6 months, and are hellish expensive.

Sounds to me as tho you have decided already:) I like the energy that Halides provide, not to mention the glitter lines. The new bluer spectrum halides are also really cool. Just to make you reconsider.:)
