    Cool

    correct me if I'm wrong but isn't T5 lamps just NO lamps? I'm sure they are but there just thinner than T8's
    VHO's have internal reflectors and of course are brighter so when running actinics you get that much more. You could run NO's and be happy for sure but I like VHO ballasts. [ICECAP 660]

    Its going to cost me around 1000$ to light this tank with MH and VHO. No point in trying to be cheap... I'll get all the good stuff

    Yes I would like to save money but there are so many opinions on what lights should be used that at some point one just has to give in. If I went with MH/NO I'd be saving around 100$ over MH/VHO so if VHO is better is has to be worth the bucks, right?
