got my new light ordered!
this is going to be what i start with and will have plenty of room for expansion down the road. raver reviews on its instalation dependablity and ease of use. even has a built in timer! it didnt come with liughts but i ordered x2 of the life glo tubes. should be a week or 2 untill i get them, but once i get them im going to go out and grab some plants. any reccomendations? i know most stem plants grow fast and easy but any others that will go nicely with these lights?

Nice light. The reflector is far superior than what you can get in a typical hood setup.

I expect that almost anything will grow well under those so just pick what you like the look of.


Total years fish keeping experience: 7 months, can't start counting in years for a while yet.

wow thats awesome. i did research on all kinds of t5's in this price range. this is by far the best fixture due to the reflector material. if you were to buyh just the reflector its like more then half the cost of the whole thing. once i get it and get some plants ill put up some pics
