    Hello guys, I planned to upgrade my old T5. It will be used for the tanks with these dimensions: 48″ x 18″ x 24″

    I reviewed the tables with recommendations for the light in reef tanks. It is recommended to take 4 54W fluorescent bulbs for the 90 gal tank. Can I take such lamps? https://www.mrosupply.com/lighting/...llasts/1854152_flft5eh54w850_fulham-lighting/

    Please, help me. I need your advice before buying.

    those bulbs will not be the right spectrum for coral growth, 10 k 12k bulbs is what i would recommend i used ATI bulbs there a bit more expensive but i think it worth it i ran purple plus, coral plus,and 2 blue plus
