Yeah, I honestly can't say i've heard anything at all good about those led's. My lfs told me not to waste my time on them, he was complaining on how alot of the bulbs burn out and then he has to take the units back and give a new one.

I also like the idea of a dual T5 fixture. You can mix and match til you get the colors you want.

A nice ATI aquablue special with either a purple plus or a blue plus.

I think that would make the fish colors pop. I;m rying the purple plus for the first time myself so I can't speak from actual experience. LOL I do know the specials and the blue plus are awesome together, I love me some blueish hue!

its off a guy at a lfs, its out of the box but brand new. its a shame im running a black tank and hopefully a black stand to match soon but the light fixture is brown. maybe i have some left over spray paint.

on the glo light fixtures though, check the bulb size, they might be special size and only their brand will fit. I thought I read that was on of the brands that did that.
