There's both T5NO & T5HO; The difference is NO stands for normal output, and HO stands for high output. A T5NO light system is not as intense as a T5HO light system, T5NO works great for low light low tech tanks, but wouldn't be enough lighting for a high tech tank. Whereas a T5HO system is far to intense for a low tech tank, but is great for high tech tank.
