However, since I got them to supplement my 3 80 watt T5 HO lights and allow me to get more light spread, I'm satisfied.

When all is said and done, the fact that I don't have to replace the bulbs every 12 months justifies the $260 or so i paid for both lights.

On their own, it would definately be low light on a 6 foot 150 gallon tank.
interesting. can you take pics of the difference?

I have a 36 inch odyssea quad bulb t5HO fixture I am looking to trade for shrimp and/or nerite snails (preferably nerite's with somekind of patterned shell).

It is about a year old so the bulbs are on their last leg but they still seem to be growing plants fine. It has a large amount of hard water stains on the acrylic splash gaurd and on the lower side of the fixture that I will definitely clean up as best I can before trading. Also the support arms are a little rusty making it a little difficult to push and pull them in and out (still easy for an adult but not "smooth") LEDs work fine as well.

If aquarium is big its okay but I kept three in 15gal tank and they laid eggs everywhere in my tank. I cant hatch it but also broken eggs last for year look messy gave me so much stress

Did you have them order for you or did you just catch a lucky break?

Well I bugged them for months, said they ordered the but only arrived from Germany when they were a big enough size. Basically a lucky break the day I showed up.

Nice find! Aren't they Natural Pets now? They have a nice planted tank there by the ticket area.. Not a good plant selection though... More than most though.

I just found some Badis Badis at The Aquarium Center in NJ. They also had some really nice Fire Red Shrimp! Of course, I had to grab a few...

Thanks guys. I'm surprised that Nemos got 4 different kinds of apistos this week. I don't think I can remember a place with that many apistos at once
