Yesterday I fitted a 250w MH
with 2 29w T5 blues over my tank.
WOW, what a difference it has made! Everything, and I mean everything has improved! Polyp extension on all long polyp corals. My BTA looks liek its gonna explode its tips are so inflated. The live rocks are showing more life and colour. The fish seem more vibrant and happy. When you turn out the MH
the tank throws out even more life than usual!
If you are considering the jump to MH
, do it. I am sooo chuffed with whats happened in my tank. I would never have thought it would make the difference it has.
For all you guys in Europe. I got mine off a guy on Ebay. He is German but I cant remember his name. Search for "Real Light Halide". Incredibly cheap. I got a 2ft pendant with hanging kit, 250w Halide and 2x T5 blues for £195. Fantastic. BTW this is not an advert, I dont know the seller but thought the info would help those guys (like me) who have not got cash to burn
