Hi is there anyone still using T5 HO 36" here? have you used coralife bulbs before? they are almost half price at JL compare to giesemann or kz...are they a good buy? My bulbs are getting dimmer and I need to replace 6 of them very soon. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated, thanks

I still use them. 4 to be exact. I have never used the coral life bulbs though. I've used ATI, giessman and KZ only.

I've used the 24" ones, actinic is good, daytime bulbs are so so. Kz is expensive but bulbs are the best

I run the T5 on my 40g breeder and with the height of only 16" I may try cheap bulbs like coralife. I will borrow my friend's par meter to see the quality
