HI guys would like to hear your opinions on upgrading my lighting on my tank. I have a 55g reef tank with some cheap lighting i bought on ebay they are 216w pc
lights and would like to upgrade.
Should i go with t-5 or metal halides?
I like this 2 fixtures and dont know witch one would benefit me better. Both from marinedepot.com
the first one is the (AquaticLife HQI Metal Halide Fixtures with T5 HO
and Lunar LEDs)48inch. it is 4 x 48 Inch 54W T5HO
Actinic / Blue
2 x R7S 150W HID
4 x 1W Lunar LED
the 2nd one is (48 Inch 4x54 Watt AquaticLife T5 HO
Light Fixture w/ 4 Lunar LEDs Information) (2) 48" T5 HO
54W 420/460 Lamps
(2) 48" T5 HO
54W 700+ Lamps
(4) 1W Lunar LED
I personally like the metal halides but think 516w of light might be to much for
