triple T8 or double CF ?
I am planning on getting 40G tank (48x13x16) from All Glass Aquarium. The tank is going to be heavily planted. My choices for lighting from the same company are -
1) triple tube high performance strip-lite (electronic ballast + 3x40W T8) 120W total (3W/G)
2) Compact Fluorescent Strip-Lites (electronic ballast + 2x55W GE 9325) 110W total (2.75W/G).
In both cases the lights are sitting on a glass versa-top. Any cons and pros for either choice which I should consider ?
