discuspaul I don't - and have never had any real problem with algae.

However, as Crob mentioned, your T5 NO should be fine too. Lower light in a discus tank is not a bad idea, and it's still ok for low-tech as well.

Soup12 they are t5NO

I went with NO, because I do not want algae. I am going low tech


Do you guys does co2 with your T5ho fixtures in your 75?

That can make a significant difference.

I have 2 X 39 w T5 HO bulbs on my 75 gal planted discus tank, and they do a super job - have a look:
