LED's & t8's? ??

I have a 90 gallon that I'm in the process of setting up. I currently will be using 2 36 inch single t8 bulbs.
If u got a 48 inch LED light could I still use my t8s with the LED'S? ??

It's a 90 gallon. I think it's 2 feet deep. Budget isn't high. I think I am going to get a finnex brand led.

LEDs are far more powerful than you think

If you are doing low light plants on a 90g then a finnex will be just fine. No need to run the fluorescent lights along with it.
