t12 versus t8 odno observations?
I love the sticky thread, but am curious about real world observations as well.
Sticky thread indicated that light "density?" for t8 more than t12 (150 v 75 for no, 240 v 145 for 2x). That said, a t12 has 226sq inches of surface versus 150 for a t8. On top of that, we also are dealing with reflector issues.
My question for everyone who all has played with just replacing bulbs (in both no and odno), how did the looks (amount of light on your tank - brightness) of your tank change (and did it effect your plants if you did the experiment long enough).
