    Hey all.

    I think most of us know that 2wpg is a good range of lighting. Does it matter whether it is PC lighting, MH, T5, T8. T12. etc? I am just looking at different fixtures and want to be sure that I get sufficient lighting.

    second, I know there has been a 'thing' for T5 lighting lately...and will probably be well known in the future. I am aware that T5 has NO and VHO version...is the 'talk' about T5 on the VHO only? Some LFS guy was trying to sell me a Coralife T5 fixture for only roughly 50US (36" Dual T5)...which is very cheap...but is it too good to be true? I think the lighting is only NO...but each tube is 21W...so if I get about 2-3fixtures...I am good....

    something wrong?

    Thanks

    You'll get more with PC/TO etc but 2 w/gal is good all the way around.
