I have a 38gal. tank contains low to high light plants. I currently have a 192watt 36" PC by Coralife. I am thinking of going to T5HO Nova Extreme 78watt 36". I am not sure if I will get the same effect by changing or if things will still be basically the same or worse. Please help me decide. This subject sometimes can really be confusing.

I'm pretty sure you will have about the same light intensity with those two fixtures. If the Coralife fixture is as good as an AH Supply kit you will have the same intensity. But, if it isn't as good, you will get more intensity from the T5HO fixture, assuming it has good, individual reflectors for each bulb, and I think it does.
