Thanks! Once I see how the existing plants react to the new lights, I am going to get some more high light plants. As you can tell from the photo's, most of my plants died off when I went from the 250w MH to the dual T5 HOs. The move to Kessil was in hopes of getting back in that MH range. So hopefully I can get a much better scape going with the new light.
