    2-T5HOís vs 4-T8NO's

    Iím trying to get exactly how good T5HOís are for my 33g lighting upgrade. Is one T5HO the equivalent to 2 T8NOís? Iím picking up 2 T5HOís today but want to make sure I have enough light before I build my canopy. I can add another strip now but not after itís built. I only plan on having softies (zoos, xenia, mushrooms, ricordiaís) and some LPS (frogspawn or hammer).

    You can easily look at a NO lamp but doing this to a T5 lamp will make you see spots. I think it would be safe to say a T5 is comparable to a couple NO lamps(if not more). HTH
