    T5 lights or cheap led's?

    been out of the hobby for a couple of years and was just wondering if changing from a 4 bulb t5 fixture to a Chinese knockoff led would be a upgrade(I can't afford the good ones atm)

    Hey Eric,
    If you plan on maintaining a REEF, then you want to make sure you have the right lighting to ensure good coral growth. Bad lighting usually promotes growth of algae. Just my 2 cents.
