Nice one! I don't think there is such a thing as T5 HE..that's why I'm asking. I know there is T8 T12 T5 T5HO VHO. Something like that

H. O is high output. And H. O is low output. So if you plan to have coral reef make sure the T5 is high output . Some brand esp deep blue T5 has two kind

I'm sorry, but what you said made no sense to me. You said HO for high and low output...it can't be both. But what does the HE stand for? High...what? not LO low output.

That's what I meant by their typo. I think they meat t5ho is high out put and t5he is low output

The HE stands for High Efficency which would be a lower output

Thanks for everyone's help so far what I'm thinking is
2 Teotronics LEDs for lights
DIY 100g main tank
DIY 20g sump tank
Im using the Herbie overflow method for sump
1200 gph overflow
Plumbing from bulkreefsupply.com
Reef octopus nwb150 6" pinwheel in sump protein skimmer
Brs Gfo & carbon reactor- dual
Eheim compact+ pump 3000 for the return
Live rock & live sand for the aquarium and some for the sump
Heater
Coral
Fish
Salt mix
Hydrometer
Filter sock for sump
Some maintenance equipment
Water Testing equipment
That's what I have in mind so far I'm getting most of it from bulkreef supply
Can anyone tell me what company to get the testing equipment from ? Like nutrafin by Hagen or something like that
What maintenance equipment will I need to clean the sand bottom? Also the coral how do u clean them?
Also does anyone know a company or store that sells plate glass and/or starphire glass( aka low iron glass)?
