40 breeder. High tech LED or t5HO?
Looking for new lighting system for my high tech dutch scape.
Searching around I found that if I would go LED I would choose Finnex ray II, but my question is would just one put me at high light or would two be better and just have the second one lit for four hours a day. Also, if I chose just one, I am worried that the spread of light wouldn't be enough and the light would just go straight down not flooding the entire tank enough.
For t5HO I would most likely go for 4 bulbs and have 2 lights on for 4 hour burst period just like the LED's as far as what brand I am open to ideas. I have heard of Catalina and their amazing reflectors. If I did choose Catalina, maybe I could pass for just 2 bulbs and still get amazing color and growth. I understand that it's not all about light but more about the balance of co2 and fertz. Anyway, any other brand suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Or any other things that may be worth mentioning, feel free.
