In concern to the bulb life of the t5's, i know some reefers replace bulbs as often as 8 months, but that's not really necessary for a planted tank. I've had quality geisemamn bulbs last 2 years, g.e star coats the same without any negative consequences to plant growth. I tried led's and I got adequate plant growth, but I ran into a problem with certain plant species and led lights, mostly red stems.
