Compared to my t5s, yes. I don't really hear it though because of the sounds of my sump. Its just the fan making noise.

It's really not bad at all. I can barely hear it unless my power heads and protein skimmer is off. It's more of a smooth sound.

I will ask u in a week what u like and don't like.

I get paid on 30th. So I will order them next week.
No problem, glad you liked it! They are dimmable so I had them at 50:50 and slowly raised it. I'm maxed with sps at 65:65 right now but I'm sure I'll go higher. I have mine about a foot above it.. It ideal to have it 8" I think. It covers my whole tank and some right now.. The higher it is from your tank, the more surface is covered, but less intense.

Oh really? How? I would love to know, that would mean I could change out the diodes for some uv and cyan there.
