Need help picking T8 lights and planning for the future.
I currently use 2 24' T8 on my 30gal this is a new setup. At my LFSs the only choices I have are zoo-med,hagen, aqueon.
Of the 3 which would you guys recommend, and is it better to get one 6700k and a 2800k ( I think thats the rating on the plant bulbs) or to get both as 6700k?
Also I would love recommendations on sites that ship to Canada for T8 bulbs as my selections is somewhat limited in town.
Based on Hoppy's PAR chart my hagens are kinda low on the par chart the others aren't rated, I have white reflectors on each bulb but I plan to find some sort of mirrored vinyl for the reflectors to help, as I don't imagine the white is doing an amazing job.
I would like to switch to T5HO at somepoint, but is it worth it for me or am I good with what I have? I mean based on the charts without a par meter my par's seem kinda low. I'm getting growth it is slow but it is a new tank, I don't know, am I just over thinking this? I'm trying to shoot for medium lighting.

Reason: Wrong rating on Bulbs
