Lowtech is much cheaper as well, as the name suggests you have a smaller amount of technical things, you just have cheap setup that is some what decent.
Low light it is then! =) I'm assuming the LED you mentioned earlier is lowlight.. will it be more than enough to fill in the tank I mentioned earlier or would I need two of them to achieve good light? Or is it made just for the long tanks? If it wont work for the aqueon 8, do you have something else in mind that would work?
