The difference between the Pro and the other one, the Pro doesn't have the moonlight LED (no big deal to me) but has better legs and each bulb has a contoured reflector.

A 90 might be to deep for T5 HO, or at least for the 6x54w fixtures.

Roka, the other NEP also has 8x54w bulbs compared to the 6x54w bulbs on the standard NEP

You could just have a deeper sand bed to cover that extra 4-5 inches, should help with nitrates too.

You want at least 6 bulbs, lunars are not required. 8 bulbs would work the best IMO.
