    Guys I have got a question and I hope there are guys out there that can help me from experience.

    I have a couple of 80w brand new T5 tube, 10 000K and 15 000K. Then I also have a few ATI aquablue special and oddessea actincs that has been runiing a couple of months. I curently have also white and blue LEDs running on my tank.

    What combination of these T5's would you put together.

    Oh yesI also have 2 brand new 20 000K 58W t5 tubes tha I do have a fitting for as well.

    Input will be appreciated . Tank with fish, soft coral, lps and a few sps.

    Thanks

    How many T5's do you have space for? What are the dimentionsof the tank? Please describe the LEDs in detail to facilitate accurate advice.

    @irie ivan

    The dimensions of the tank is 1900 X 1000 X 450 high, so there would be enough space for T5's. I currently have 3 X white and 3 X blue 1,2m led strips that was made up by the lamphouse in Cape Town.

    I am however planning to do a LED built soon.
