    Hi everyone, what lights do you use?

    Trying to find cost effective, quality lights in Canada isn't very easy, compared to some of the lights that are available in the U.S.

    I use T5 HO 6500 K and I also use the 13W (same as 100 W incandescent) 5000K day light LED bulbs in the Exo Terra hoods. Had good success with both and broms keep their colours

    Sunblaster LED lights are what I use and I've also had great success with them. I have a 48 inch one raised 4-5" from the tops of my 18x18x24 tanks and a single 18 inch on a 22x22x36. Both have had no issues punching all the way down to the floor of the tanks and the broms have been thriving. They run cool, have a phenomenal lifespan and are reasonably priced. Might be another option to consider....

    The Sunblaster LEDs are what I've been looking at, and was just curious if there are other brands people used with success.
    I have my wife nearly convinced that the SB LEDs are the way to go, since there won't be any fluorescent bulb hum (which really irritates her)
