    sokol as someone who has phsyically seen the difference because sometimes pics are decieveing what do you think of the T5', I ask because right now I have a 77G with 6 NO 40W flourescent and I'm trying to decide between 4VHO's and the 4 T5's but I've never seen either !

    The new Helios T5 II HO are really nice and have quite a punch.

    Saw a store that had them on a softy /LPS tank looked real nice.

    You could fit 6-8 T-5s in the space of 4 VHOs.

    I've seen the difference firsthand as well....there is no comparison IMO. T-5s win handsdown!
