I have VHO
's and I used pc
before. My corals really seemed to take off with the vho
's. Only downside was not having the moonlights with them. we are getting a strip of moonlights from ebay though for a 72" for $70. So having had both I prefer VHO
, but I am sure there are opinions and preferences.
