Just got a current usa Nova extreme pro 20" for a swap recently. Never used t5 before but really like coral color and growth from t5 tanks vs LEDs. Just got new bulbs (the only options local are tru lumens or aquatic life. Excited to see what happens!

So pretty much limited to 4 spectrums when it comes to 18W T5 Bulbs. Got 3X 460nm Deep Blues and 1 12K White from Tru Lumen. The other two are a 420/460nm Blue and 420 Purple from Aquatic life. Corals have instantly responded as well. Seem to enjoy the light spread of the T5's....Definitely a worthwhile trade as I was getting annoyed with my LEDs!!!
