He bought 3 fixtures for his large tank @ $150 or less a fixture (can't remember) and he is liking what he sees.

Personally, I just like the look of my T5s more so than the nonprogrammable LEDs. I do envy the electricity cost savings of LEDs though!
hey Rick you know anything about those lights I heard they weren't that good but if X has them they must be ok I would think

Those lights have most of the benefits of LEDs at a fraction of the cost. (good light & PAR, cheaper running cost). If memory serves me right, he likes his fixtures. Check out his thread. If you still have questions, PM him.
