Like I said, the T5's have been good to my 29 gallon.
Don't wait if you can. What size tank are you putting the Sol Blue's on? If it's that 29, you don't need that many.
T5's are great. I'm using 6 over my 75. Two of which being overdriven by icecap 660 ballast. Replacing the bulbs just once a year is pushing it. I replace mine around the 6 month mark. Once that spectrum starts to fade and change, that's normally when algae shows it's face.
Wet/dry converted into sump with a Bubble Magus NAC7 cone skimmer, MAG7 return, 200 micron filter socks, Vortech MP40w + two returns for flow. Current Sundial T5 + two retro Icecap T5's (6 bulbs),
