Hey Hoppy or anyone else,

How would the Zoomed Aquasun rate among the T5HO units? I know they don't have the best reflectors, not sure about their ballasts. Any PAR data out there for these units?

That's what I thought as well, but I've read several older threads that say these lights don't have the best reflectors/ballasts and PAR is only about 50 umols at those heights. If I raise them any...

GSA, Dosing All Ferts Same Day?

So lately I have been dosing all my dry ferts on the same day. I make sure to dose phosphate first, and anything containing iron last to give them sufficient time to disperse in the tank.
