Current USA T5HO?

The sundials are what I'd call intermediate fixtures. You probably could keep some SPS, but it would be a stretch.

So really not worth the money right? Why spend 200 bucks on lighting when you cant do all. Other suggestions?

I have that fixture on my 15g and will use it on my 20H.

This requires a little DIY, but if I can do it with no prior experience, it shouldn't be too hard:

The listed length is 24 inches, but "30 inch" fixtures actually have the same bulbs as 24 inch ones except they use a staggered arrangement.

 

Travis: the whole point of T5s is that their shape allows reflectors to be around each bulb, and so it makes sense to get the best reflectors one can afford.

Note::: I did change out the stock bulbs to these.

This fixture has individual reflectors, well sortof. It's one reflector bent a bunch of times so that each bulb has its own reflector.

"sort of" :P

 

jocappy: don't worry, lighting is one of the most argued subjects in reefkeeping. I have the Reefgeek retro that I posted on my 20 high, and I got it after hearing positive reviews from many members.
