Yea I'm leaning more towards keeping my 400w's being how my 300g is wide and deep. Decisions Decisions, lol

I do , 3 x 400 w Radium , i try 12 x 80w T5 , in my opinion nothing is even close to MH , i decided to run 2 G4 LEDs ( just to enjoy the pop color ) i mean the "Disco" light. Except electrical $ and heat , nothing is close for list 10 years. I refer to 99% SPS.

Yea I was thinking about how I can penny pinch by avoiding MH's. But my 3 400w did me well before the break down.
