Hey just wanted to run this by you guys. I currently have 2 t5's over my 90 gallon...and obviously need more :) I have a metal halide fixture by current 2x150w de bulbs....now should i buy new bulbs for the metal halide fixture or just retrofit 2 t5's into it like i did with a similar power compact fixture?? What do you think would be the better option? And what bulbs should i get??? Thanks in advance :) !!!

I would just retro the t5 and use those for actinic, morning and evening. Then run 15-20k bulbs in the mh.

Mine are not in a fixture but, I am running 2x 175w 14k MH and 4x 54w T5's (Purple+, Blue+, True Actinic, Blue+) Its quite a nice mix. I would go with the MH and T5, do the retro kit.
