Hi mate, I have 4 x 24w T5 (2 x white & 2 x blue). My tank is an Aquareef 195 made by Aquaone. More info can be found on below link:
I probably would replace the T5s with a good LED
light fixture later on down the track as the tank is still fairly new (only a couple months old) and its a shame to get rid if it when it came with the tank. For now I was thinking of getting a cheap blue LED
light from eBay to give that moonlight effect at night rather than turning the reflectors over all the time on the existing fixture. Btw I'm in Sydney. Also don't know how easy or hard it would be to sell this light fixture. If I found a good cheap second-hand chiller I may consider getting one for this summer, but I'm worried about the extra noise they make. I'm also looking out for cheap ones in eBay. Can you recommend any affordable but good chillers out there?
