Melosu58, both fixtures are a four-bulb fixture w/single reflector.
Ziggy953, as I read more and more Im finding the T5 HO
to penetrate better than PC
as you mentioned. I like the idea they last longer, stay cooler, and more color temps.
Im thinking the wattage isnt as important as penetration and spectrum, and wondering if there is a significant difference with 216w-PC
vs 260w-T5HO in regards to wattage/penetration?
Im trying to stay away from MH
due to their bulk, heat, and possibly price, which I havent checked yet.
