Hi JwDiedrich16,

Only T5, not T5HO so probably "low light", maybe at best "low/medium light". Club members that have purchased Coralife have had issues with noisy fans and ballast failures....I think you could find better.

My local hydroponics shop carries sunblaster T5H0 units. I believe it's 32$ for a strip, bulb included. You could check some shops in your area.
