This is why I'm not ready to switch. I like the almost surreal colors produced by a mixture of T5s.
I'm with you on this AT.
For my new tank I was looking hard into LED's since everyone seems to be all about LEDs...LED this...LED that... and it's wowness! I looked at both highend and DIY options and after my research I decided against it since I couldn't find anything that would make the purchase worthwhile.
The biggest drawback for me is that there aren't good one stop solutions for the planted community. Then the fixtures that do seem to cater for small tanks with blah intensity IMO. So you now have to buy 3~6 of the stupid fixtures to get intensity/coverage, worse if you have big tanks since these things are not cheap.
If it could give me colors not possible with T5HO then that's different, but as is, it brings nothing new to the table color wise and that's my bottom line.
