i beg to differ. i use 108wt of T5HO now, instead of the 390wt of CF that I used to have, and I've gotten way better results. The T5ho 2x54wt was about $130 vs 4x65wt CF at about $230

I've always boasted that I thought my 2x54wt Hagen T5HO unit was much brighter than the Coralife 4x65wt CF fixture.
