Yeah I second this vote. Or to save a little money, the Current-USA Nova Extreme. You'll have to replace the two actinics. I really like a 10000k and 6700K bulb combo. Its what I run on my two bigger tanks. The plus on T5s is they run cooler, and more efficient. I'm quite pleased. The Tek weighs a LOT more than the Current-USAs which have a fan I run when the second bank of two tubes is on. A Current tech told another forum member that many reefers turn off the fan if the noise bothers them - with no ill affect. Just that the bulbs don't last as long. I use both open top, BTW.
