Recommended Posts

So,

putting together another 20 long

this will b lps, softie only

 

I have a 2 bulb t5, and a rapid led 700 Nano driver on a 1.5” wide heatsink that fits perfectly up against the t5 once mounted. The light will mount directly on tank-3-4” above water.  So par is of no concern w this shallow tank.  I want a blue heavy tank for lps & Zoas 

 

led is blue w 2) violet 420-430 led.  

 

T5 recommendations???

2 blue+  I bought a few different bulbs to see what I prefer when I get my hybrid soon.  I am going to try 2 blue+ first.  I might run a blue+ and coral+ and only use the leds for blues though.

It really depends on what you like. I would do like @TILTON said. 

 

2x Blue + 

 

Or 

 

1x Blue + & Coral +

 

Or try a Purple Plus.

I have a four bulb t5 over my 20L with two blue+, one each of aquablue special and purple plus. It also has seven actinic LEDs down the center that I run with the t5. Heres as shot of the color at present compared to with the bulbs it came with (two ati actinic, one purple+, one coral+).

 

Old - Two actinic, one purple +, one coral+

VS.

 

New - Two blue+, one aquablue special, and one purple+

I know this isn't apples to apples since you only have two bulbs to work with, but thought it would be helpful to see the blue+ in action.

I run an ATI blue+ and ATI purple+.  It removes some of the blue washed effect to have the purple as my LEDs run super blue
