T5 envirolite

Hi,
Does any have experience with T5 envirolites for Small aquariums?
Their claim is full spectrum with a CRI rating of 92.
Cheers
Joe

It really boils down to quantity over quality of light spectrum. throw 3wpg of 3000k at plants, and they'll grow as well as if you were using 6500k bulbs.

Treat T5's like power compacts in terms of output. 3wpg of PC's or T5's should grow anything.
