I was looking at attempting to squeeze in two 175's but don't think it is going to be possible unless I disassemble the T5HO fixture. Another concern is the height of the canopy I typically see "monster" canopys for MH
. I have around 6 to 6.5 inches of canopy depth to mess with. I will see how many more T5HO I can squeeze in.
I would think that highlight corals will likely not be kept. Problem I have is the overall inconsistency of the information I come across comparing the more traditonal MH
. The comparisons are sort of useless because they are started with the entrie purpose of showing that the individuals lighting source is superior (not about facts). Sort of like Ford and Chevy diehards (no winning an arguement with either). Overall it appears that 4 T5HO with individual reflectors compares favorably to a 250 watt MH
and surpasing with age?
