I have T5 and love them, I just switched the bulbs after a year and a half.
Here is a funny little story. I was at the local fish store and was asking about a coral and the guy asked me what type of lighting I have. I replied T5's, he said No for this coral you need PC
the t5's arent as good as the PC
. I said really? I thought they where better, no no you need some PC
and then proceeded to try to sell me some. then the other fish store guy comes up and says those corals are not photo synthetic and dont need light, that is the tank below. I not being a newb, like this guy thought I was already knew this and just wanted to hear what this jerk had to say. He then said oh woops my bad, brain fart.
So let that be a lesson to you all, they are only out to make money!
I dont buy anything from that place, I just go in to look
I can buy anything I want online and have it overnighted to me and still pay less that that store.
