Crap spectrum on all those LEDs mentioned. Stick with your T5 and just run all four bulbs. Get a wider spectrum of bulbs instead of just 4 cool whites and calling it a day.

His light system cost a lot to put together. You can't buy anything like it in the commercial world. Price of admission for light is high end reef level. His light controller alone was $200.
