8x54 T5 Fixture Opinion

I'm thinking about 8x54 T5 instead of MH for the cost and heat. Anyone have an opinion?

It'll be on a 75G.

I'm all for it!

The only downside is the limited choices in bulbs for T5. Make sure you know where you can get the kinds you want before you commit to the fixture.

I'm thinking (6) 10K bulbs and (2) actinics.
