Thanks Ben. I'm actually leaning towards the LEDs just because the bulbs won't ever need to be replaced and I can just put the ballast directly on the tank. Hoping to make a decision soon, so any other thoughts from you or any other members is much appreciated.

Edit: After doing some more research, these LEDs @ 0.2W won't be sufficient enough for plant growth. All show, no grow haha. Rather than spend double for the LED I think I'll just go double t5.
