Tired of the shadowing under your SPS using LEDs only for lighting?

Adding T5 to the mix can cure that problem. Plus, it will increase you coral growth.

Hamilton Aruba Sun T5 HO lighting systems eliminate the shadowing from LEDs only.

Being strictly LEDs, I couldn't agree more.

So am I reading this right you both believe you should run a mixture of LEDS and T5?

In my opinion a combination of t5 and leds are the way to go!

Based on the picture above, wouldn't an LED "string" in place of the T5 do the same thing, but also eliminate the replacement cost of the T5 bulbs (Note I have no idea if an LED string commercially exists in the color you would need - commenting on the concept mostly)
