High Tech Dual T5 with LED Light vs 2 LED Lights for 72 Bow???
Hello I've been taking my high tech 72 bowfront discus tank very slow and i'm stuck on the lighting. First I was thinking about getting a good dual T5 light with and LED light as well to get the par where I need it since I want a carpet.
But now my concern is the light bill since I have 2 other high tech tanks running (10g CRS/Taiwan fire, 7.9 Ebi Betta with endlers) and an 18g community tank which I will take down when I set up the 72g. I have notice the bill go up some but not that much so I was thinking instead of getting a dual T5 with LED why not get 2 real good LED lights (tru lumen or pinnex ray 2). Also I know T5's give off a lot of heat as well and since this will be in my room I dont want that.
I have seen the charts on PAR for led lights and seems like 2 LED lights should work fine for a high tech 72 bowfront and should bring my light bill down compared to the T5.
I know if I get 2 real good LED lights it will be a little more expensive but in the long run will save me money plus not deal with the heat issue. Let me know what you guys think about this?
