Ok.... PC changes it then. PC is kind of old tech, not as good at penetrating as T5HO, and the reflectors aren't as good. Here's what I was talking about... Sylvania, FBO32/741/6/ECO, 32W, Low Mercury Content, TLCP Compliant, O# Those are old school haha. With what you've got, two would probably be sufficient for lower light. 4 would be verging on higher end IMO. Funny how a simple acronym can change so much isn't it? PC is still used in the reef world, though many prefer T5HO, MH, and even LED now.

That would be funny in an aquarium! The light kit I found looks well designed I can hardly wait to put them up. I may l finally post some pics maybe. My little 30 gal ghost shrimp tank is gorgeous. Making so many little ghosties now.

Had a blast the last couple of days putting 220 watts of power compact lighting in my community tank and retrofitting the 17 watt strip light over my ghost shrimp tank to run a 55 watt power compact bulb! It all looks great!
