so looking at lighting options for a 20x20x18 22g 'ish' and its making me crazy!!

 

so i have narrowed it down to the following

 

150w MH with 2 x 24w T5 for moonlight

6 x 24w T5 HO, then i can play with colour

 

which would you choose? I will have sps.

 

Decided against LED due to cost and not many good second hand units...

 

Have considered DIY LED but doesnt seem that much cheaper by the time i import and get tools etc....

 

Thanks

check out the first link in my sig before writting off LED..

 

i built a setup for my 55g that was less than 150 and was super easy to build. (no soldering, drilling, tapping..etc)

 

i'd recommend 20 of the bulbs. So $5x20 plus $22 for sockets. $122 and some wire nuts/tape/ screws and you will be much better off .

 

you can see my tanks success with the lights by clicking either side of my sig banner too :)
