Default HELP!!! head is spinning!!

This is CRAZY!!! buying bulbs is worse than Christmas shopping! I am replacing the stock Current bulbs in my Sundial fixture. I need 4 24W T5's ...nano tank...20L...holds LPS, zoas, and will be getting an anemone...hopefully a rose BTA for the clowns...tank is only 12"deep so I know the 4 bulbs will be enough for the anemone....I also have a 56g sps reef and a 108 pred. tank...so not a total newb...but there are just soooooo many choices of bulbs and T5 IS new to me as the sps reef is dual halides and VHO...so what combo have you used and liked and not liked....HELP!!!

I like the KZ line of T5 bulbs the best. The new generation coral light is super nice at about 14K. I would honestly just run three of the new gens and one fiji purple.

I totally 100% agree. I have used the Coral Light bulbs and Fiji Purple in combination, and loved it. It's definitely on the bluer side, but I prefer that anyway.

Anywhere that carries the fiji purple should carry the new gens or can order them. I would guess J&L has them but they may not be on the webpage.

Interesting. I wonder why. They already order products from the wholesaler who carries KZ bulbs so I can only guess they must have something against KZ bulbs, I would be curious to know what it is. After all they seem to carry almost everything and the KZ line is certainly in high demand.
