change t5 setup a bit, from left to right
ATI blue special(12k), geisemann actinic blue plus, 6700k, blue special 12k, and actinic blue plus

changed the 12k in middle to a 6700k helped add some more white to tank since it was really blue

is this a good combo for tank with nothing but lps, zoas, rics.
hoping the daylight bulb with boost some more growth.

this pics are with new 6700k bulb in fixture last pics were really blue and couldn't make out most of corals. Hopefully this will help coral growth more than the bluer lights.

Indermark do you have any pics of your tank? I will be getting my T-5 fixture soon and I"m also trying to figure out what I will run.

Frech, A 6700k should do the job for the growth your looking for. The coral that you frag off for us looks to be an Acan maybe?? Not sure I'll have to see it. I'll be up today, I have to go get fitted for a Tux's so I'll be in & out of the house but won't go to bed until around 3 pmish.

Go to the lighting forum and ask a guy called grimreefer what is best for your fixture . The thread is something like T5 questions and answers
