what lights do you use?

What lights do you use?

Leds? T5? Brand? Tank size?

I have a marineland reef ready 20-24" adjustable to fit 5-15g LED light- 6 white, 3 blue and I'm probably going to grab an actinic secondary t12 once I make this craigslist deal. My tank is a 10g nano reef

I have a 60" 6 bulb T5 HO Sunlight Supply Tek T5 HO fixture. I think LEDs might have been the cheaper/better option. This is a great brand though, and I need to move the lights up b/c it seems like it's too much. I have a 70 gallon tank.

I run 2 Ho aquatic-life T-5 fixtures
2 10kwhite daylights 2 actnic blues
along with a 8 bulb micro-sun ho ultra double blue led fixture
the leds really make the corals pop
for a small led light this thing rocks
not cheap though was $65.
and the coral seem to respond to it growth wise
