    Shoot, would love to have my stuff arranged like that, but I still play too much around with equipment and installation to have it all permanently in place.

    Keep pictures coming.

    Aww, you can do it bro! I'm gonna post the grommets I'm using, the exact sizes, and why I chose the sizes I did. I'll also post some comparison pics of the grommets to plug sizes.

    The biggest mistake I see IMO is that people don't do enough research before they order grommets. They order huge grommets. The smaller the cleaner the job looks. So stay tuned and I'll break it down.

    This is my third I've bought (in a financial struggle) and I gotta say, they are very clean little fixtures and very budget friendly!

    I run ATI and KZ bulbs in them. If you use a tiny clip on fan ($10) to keep the air flowing over the bulbs to cool them, they do great! Corals instantly perk up and love the light.

    You can't find anything else on the market that grows coral for this price tag. The only other thing that comes close is the 165W eBay full spectrum fixtures. I had em and this T5 will out preform and outgrow them.

    For a 4' 6 lamp fixture that's sleek and white...$219.95 is a steal and that's with 6 cheap lamps. If you pay an additional $4, you can get the pure par bulbs which give off a great blue/purple 20K look almost. So that's $223.95 with bulbs that grow coral! NOT BAD!

    Just one I believe. I just had the 4. Sent it back for the six. I'll let you know in 2 days.


    All I can say is that they do better than 3 of the Chinese fixtures. Here's the 3 I had and they did put off light, but didn't really grow my coral that well vs the t5's.
