    that is one of the nicest tanks i have ever seen. it makes me want to invest in a better t5 fixture rather than leds.

  2. Reef Tools says:

    I keep going back and forth as well.

  3. Roy Ward says:

    the thought that keeps going through my head that stops me for sure is how much less they will cost 2 years from now

  4. Reef Tools says:

    that’s very true. However, in that case, none of us should buy a computer/tv/cell phone/etc 🙂

  5. Roy Ward says:

    yeah, but enough people will that i can hold off…. let others be the brave technological pioneers

  6. Reef Tools says:

    to me it’s a subjective questions of “what’s good enough for now”. Unless a product is completely cost prohibitive

  7. Roy Ward says:

    don’t get me wrong if my lights now became non operational i would pro replace with leds

  8. Reef Tools says:

    that makes sense. There’s no need right now, so no reason to do it.
