Alrighty, Heres whats going on. I have a 20g tank that is set up as a quarentine temporarily until my 75g is stocked. When thats done I was planning on doing a freshwater community tank because the light I have for it is only a single bulb T8. Well long story short, My light doesnt work
SO, now that I have to buy a new fixture, I figure, turn the thing saltwater.
So I am looking at two different options, and I would love opinions.
The first is a 2 bulb, T5 fixture for about $53.00 shipped Coralife Aqualight Dual Linear Strip T5 Aquarium Lighting Fixture, 2X14 Watt, 24 inch
The second route is making a hood, with two 2 bulb T8 fixtures such as this Shop Utilitech 24" Utility Fluorescent Lighting at Lowes.com
Now obviously I know that T5s are better than T8s (for some reason unknown to me
) But would 4 T8s be as good as two T5s? Aaaand what kind of coral, if any, would I be able to keep with either fixture.
Thanks for the help guys!
