I have a 65 gallon mixed reef tank. I am currently running a 36 inch current marine pro LED, with 2 36 inch true lumen actinic LED strips. This was a setup suggested by a marine depot rep. when I was looking at what lighting to go with. I know these are lower end LED, but I do like the ease of use and the controller. Unfortunately, I just cant get the water color I want. I keep turning down my white balance but I just cant get an eye catching blue that I want. I also feel that despite the supplemental LED's I'm still not getting enough light for good coral growth. http://current-usa.com/aquarium-led-lights/orbit-marine-fixtures/orbit-marine-pro/ So my question/decision is which way to go with a new light. I could keep the marine pro LED, and supplement it with T5. For a cheaper option I was considering using this fixture. Aquatic Life 36 inch fixture, it's a two bulb T5 fixture. What I like is that each bulb has it's own reflector, and its not crazy expensive. I was thinking of going with ATI coral plus, and a purple or blue plus bulb combo. All together I'm looking at under $200 to supplement my existing LED setup. I think this will help me get the color temperature where I want it, and add to my PAR without a huge investment. https://www.amazon.com/Aquatic-Life...1444&sr=1-1&keywords=aquatic+life+light+t5+36 Another option would/could be adding an entirely new LED set up. At one point it appeared that there were some Kessil tuna blues on here for $200 ea. These are a little much for my setup but if I add the controller, I should be able to dial them in a little bit. So I'd be looking at around $500 for lights and controller, and I would have to modify my hood to accommodate this lighting setup. The last option I am considering is going full T5. I'm thinking about a four bulb ATI Sunpower. I have more softies and LPS so the four bulb should provide plenty of light for my stocking. This option is going to be about $600 by the time I get the fixture and bulbs. https://www.marinedepot.com/ATI_36_...res_for_Aquariums-ATI-UZ3307-FILTFIT5-vi.html I am going to make a change at some point soon. The options are really endless. I like the quite operation of the LED's, and the fact that they don't have bulbs to replace. But on the other hand there are a lot of great systems running T5's, with great results. I was just curious what other people thought about these options in particular the mixed T5/LED option.
