              Jeff,

              which MH bulbs are you running? The blueplus T5s really complement 10K bulbs (Ushio, AB etc.), that don't have a spike at 450 nm. For higher K bulbs that have the spike at 450 nm (ie Radiums), the VHO actinics would be a better choice.

              Then there are the DE Aqua Connect/Phoenix, which many people feel don't need supplementing.

              If you want to get the most fluorescense out of your corals, the VHO actinics are the way to go.

                    FWIW, I currently use 4 T5 Blue+, and I think I am going to try replacing 2 of them with VHO actinics, so I will have 2 of each. I love the look of the T5s, but I don't get as much fluorescence out of some of the corals (and others have more fluorescence than VHO's - it's hit or miss).

                          TY Sean.. I use 20K xm now so I think I might go back to vho actinic.. If I decide to go 10K in the future maybe I will switch out the these.. I would love to see uri make a t5 actinic.. The best of both worlds...

                            Yeah with your 2ok The tank may be too blue fore your taste. The VHOs are more purple
