Which T5 Bulbs to go with my Phoenix 14000K?


New member
I have a CAD lights signature 34 gallon reef with sps, lps, and softies.

My set up has a 150w MH, and 2 24" T5s. Plus LED Moonlights.

I am curently running the Phoenix 14000k Mh and like the look of it.

My T5s are about 8 months old and are looking pretty dull, and need to be replaced. They also come on about an hour before the MH, and go off an hour later, creating a dawn and dusk effect.

What 2 T5 bulbs would you recommend that I run with the Phoenix? Actinic, Blue Plus, Aquasun?
What brands would look good with the Phoenix?

Thanks for your input.
