T5 HO Lights Purchase

Im searching for a t5 ho light that can keep anemones. I found two good ones that are different. Do you guys think these will be able to keep anemones? Also, could you guys inspect the eBay products for me? Thanks. Also like to mention that I have a 55g 20in deep. I have a 30in t5 atm.

I think it would be smarter to save up and buy 1 nicer fixture. It will look better an preform better... Also, its really not that much more expensive

Your gonna want a 6 bulb fixture. I dont think a 4 bulb will cut it well in a 55 for many nems. You will have better results with a 6 bulb.

4+ per gallon. I have the 4 bulb odyssey light and I love it! It dose not get really hot like some say so don't be discouraged.

Also I wouldn't buy from that first seller their feedback isn't great.

My tanks on 29 gallon so I only have the 30in fixture, it was 70.00 from aquatraders. The second listing doesn't look bad. Ask for some photos of it working.

4 bulb will work for a 29g but not as well for a 55g. I suggest you look into a 6 bulb jake.
