That is one serious lighting unit...very nice...I can just imagine the differences you will be seeing after even two weeks with that baby.

well they are nice, but I have now run intoi another problem. 1/2 thru the day I changed my lights, when I had the strip lights on the tank was at 83 deg. After, it shot up to 85.5 deg. so I turned the whites off, and it continued to climb to 86 deg. Now I have to save for a chiller. 8O

I thought that t-5's were supposed to run cooler than other flourescents, oops maybe not cooler than NO. How far above the tank do you have the fixture suspended?

well it's about 4" above the tank. but this morning I put a fan on the shelf next to it to kinda blow between the tank top and the bulbs, and it stays much cooler now. only 82 now. here are some pics.
