both are good. what size tank is this, and more importantly, what are you willing to spend?

Mderheim 12-19-2011 08:38 PM

Well the tank is 125 gal 60" tank are there any good brands you would suggest on the led side?

Mderheim 12-19-2011 08:39 PM

Cost wise I would like to stay somewhere in the 200 to 400 range

mr_X 12-19-2011 09:42 PM

400 total? you aren't going to get a good LED fixture for that. i would go with a 60" t5HO fixture. what are the total dimensions? 60" x ? x?

Mderheim 12-19-2011 09:46 PM

Ha ha yeah it's not for my tank it's a friend I believe it's 60"L x 18"W x 24"D

mr_X 12-19-2011 09:51 PM

what corals does he want to keep. sunlight supply tek lights come in 60". maybe a 6 lamp one...

If your planning on a Reef, youd probly be better witha t5ho. Im not 100% Sure on it though. Ask some of the Salties and see what they tell you.
