I am starting a 55gallon reef tank. I just want to keep softies, mushrooms, and zoos and maybe some Acans. I have the option to puchase a 216w T5HO fixture with individual reflectors 2 10k bulbs and 2 actinics or a 260w PC
I think the t5s will give me more bulb combos but i dont know if 216 is enough watts for a 55 gallon. I have been told that t5s are also a bit more effecient.
What do you all think. Prices for the two lights are the same?
