    Actually, i am not pointing at the lights. I just wanna know will T5 lights at that distance be too stressful for the SPS. Since u said u have the same configuartion as me, as least now, i am at ease after u explain ur sitaution to me. Thx!

    Amoungst all the other possible variables it maybe that there are not enough T5s. How wide is the tank - do the T5s have parabolic reflectors and what brand/colour are they?
    The 4 t5 tubes have their own parabolic reflectors. My tank is 15in wide. 2ft tank i am having.

    T5 lights above water surface by 3"

    Hi,

    need help on this. My T5 lights are placed 3" above the water surface. My SPS are not doing gd. Their colour are faded out. Is this due to the lights too near to the suface? My tank height is only 15 inches. I am using 4 T5 tubes. All parameters are in control. Can any1 advice on this?
