Lighting upgrade

With spring and summer upon us as it has been in the mid 80s out here for a week or so. I just ordered all finnex led fugrays for my shrimp tanks. Getting the t8 strips and t5ho out of here and will be selling the t5ho on here soon. T8 going in the garage for better lighting. Now i have no worries of eat coming from lighting.

Not only do i love finnex fixtures but less power to run and i wont have to run fans as much

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

I will take a pic when all done, as Lowe does not expect some of the fixtures for a couple weeks

I like them but they won't grow algae like t5-t8 probably.

I just got mine (FugeRay) and replace T5NOs on my 3 x 20G Long. They looks nice and pretty bright. Not to mention lower power consumption. Not sure about the algae growing ability yet, hope they will grow though.
