T5 HO vs Reef EVO LED?

Need some opinions!!!

I have a 50 gallon saltwater tank; with corals, live rock & fish.

These are the lights im going in between>>>> differences, reviews, opinions, suggestions, comments. any help would be awesome! I cant decide!

The lights im looking at are from AQUATRADER.COM -- the t5 HO; sounds like a no name brand type deal...

1. 216 watt T5 HO Light Fixture
-2X 54w T5 HO Bulbs 10,000K
-2X 54W T5 HO Actinic Blue
-4X LED Moonlights


VS


2. Reef EVO LED
-24X 10,000K 3watt LED's
-8X Actinic 460nm
-4320 Lumens

See you posted this twice... Well I don't have experience with those LEDs, but I have had t5's and now have LEDs. I have taotronics LEDs and love them. They are about $157 each. I'd go with LEDs if ur doing corals. IMO
