Lighting question.

Hey guys,
Looking to upgrade my pc setup with t5s. Will a quad 24" 24 w setup be good on a 20" deep 50 gallon? I'm looking for a light that will make my corals grow more. Thanks.

Check out T5-HO Light they have a lot of reasonable priced lights. The only draw backs is no fans and external ballasts.

Deep blue has decent quad lights too Solarxtreme T5 HO Quad Lamp System 36" the legs leave a lot to be desired but I do like the timer and only one plug to deal with. They have built in fans which does help with heat issues. The moon lights aren't that great either.
