I've just recently made the switch to LEDs from a 6 bulb t5-ho
unit and in my corals opinion the LEDs are much better the open more, there's colors I'm seeing now that we're never really visible under the t5's even when I ran just the actinics and also seeing new polyps starting to pop up in almost every colony, all this after maybe 2 1/2- 3 weeks and I'm still only running the blues at @ 30-35% and the whites @ 25% due to some of my lower light corals still getting acclimated
