yeah but you gave them a 1 1/2 and you gave LEDs 3 months .you tried all different types of combos and fixtures before you found one you like.. if you didnt you would be running MHs still.Same concept is for LEDs you need to find the combo and fixture before you can just slam LEDs LMAO.. Im happy with my LEDs i really am more then my T-5 fixture that i had for 2 years it was the same type of fixture you didnt like the TEK im sure if i went with ATI i might have stayed with T5S but i went with ACAN and i really like it.Its the color blue and purple that really dont pop all other colors really do look great

I have run them all and still run them all. I think it is a case of find that master recipe that works for you. the LEDs on the 14gal biocube bleach out everything but stuff is coming back after 3 months, the t5s on my 11gal rimless rock, and i am not happy with the current lamp combo (icecap 250W 20K's) I have for my MH setup on the 125gal... time will tell on the LED tank...
