T5 Lights

In the market for T5 lighting. Came across two relatively inexpensive brands: 1. Fish Need It T5-HO 4 bulb and Odyssea T5-HO 4 fluorescent light bulbs w/4 LED lights. Wanted to know if anyone has heard of either of these brands and what do you think of them? Oh one last question, where is the best place to shop online for saltwater fish and clean up crews? Thanks in advance!!!

Yep, I have 3 odysseas and one fish needit.

I like the moonlights on the odyssea ones but the quality of the fish needit one is better in my opinion.

UNLESS you get the new odyssea ones with the timers, I just got one last week and the quality is much better than it used to be.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks Carey! So much appreciated. Think I will get the 48" inch with the remote timer built-in.
