all things equal I'd take LED over T5 any day, replacing bulbs every year adds up not to mention the electricity savings.

Only question is whether or not that led light is as powerfull.

Diffuser problem

I have a glass diffuser for my co2 and it has developed an issue where it puts out one stream of larger bubbles at low levels, I have to turn it up to get small bubbles. Is there any way to fix this?
