I have an 8 bulb t5 that I want to retro fit leds into. Trying to load pictures from my phone but it's not working. ..

Sounds good. I've retrofitted LEDs into a Coralife PC fixture for a planted tank, after gutting the reflector and all bulb attachment points. The key is to find the right heatsink that will fit.

For me, these long strip heatsinks worked great: http://www.rapidled.com/regular-heatsinks-1/

If you need more variety and like cheap decent quality extrusions, these are also a good choice:

I've found just stuffing them on an imgur.com album and linking it works best. Its a straightforward drag and drop.
