Thank you! Is this correct info regarding T8 and T5's? T5's save more energy than T8's and that's why people have moved to them? I was told this by the LFS owner.
A single tube...I'm embarrassed to ask, but that's just one bulb right?

Edit: I visited Hoppy's thread. Thank you. I recognize it so I must have seen it before when I was researching lighting. I had forgotten everything from it except how to judge if reflectors are good or not. At least something stuck with me right LOL!

Ya know, when I got fish I had no idea how complicated it all would, filtration, medicines, plants, compatibility, and more oh my! But, I wouldn't trade keeping fish for any other pet. I love fish! Especially my betta.
