Hmm.. Guess I still don't get it... I thought it was all about the wattage (being between 3-5w per gallon) and the temerature (10k K or above ish).

Bang for buck, seems like the T-5 is the best... actinic and 10k lights at 432w is 400$.. similar all in one type hood thing that I don't wire together myself using mh 10k and actinic cf is like 800 plus..

They are putting out the same kinda light, right?

im running 4 39w T5s, and although i dont have any corals yet (or fish for that matter) they seem really bright and give out minimal heat.
