Recently returned from my preferred LFS and here what I have found - they do not have single T5HO fixtures (quelle surprise...), what they have is Deep Blue SolarmaxHE double bulb fixtures. I am curios if I go with
1) 30" fixture with 2x14W 24" bulbs (will fit the glass window in my current hood)
2) 36" fixture with 2X21W 36" bulbs (will have to remove the hood completely)
I am not sure with these HE bulbs as they are not selling them at the shop and how they perform against HO bulbs.
I wonder if anyone has these fixtures - could they run HO bulbs at a later stage when I will need to replace the bulbs...
With these HE bulbs where my setup will end - Low, Medium or High tank? My goal is to get the tank to low (maximum medium category).
