Upgrading 10+ satellite+ fixtures that I got less then 6 months ago will be painful. Lets see some retail prices.
Yeah that's what I was thinking, but definitely better than the Sat+ on it's own. I run two Sat+ on a 40B and love it. I think for the money (minus things like FX lighting) t5HO would still be the way to go for intensity at those depths.
