its a coralife mini I think, its only 11in longs. he said he just changed the bulbs but he is probably just trying to get the most money he can for it...

ETA:...see I was going to say there are no such thing as 11" T-5's. Told you I have been out of the loop. I see they do now make them...hmm..I would read some reviews and see how people like them.

If you're looking for lighting for smaller sized nano tanks I definitely recommend looking at the finnex LED light fixtures. LED lights are the future of lighting for aquariums. Have it on my 5.5 gallon tank and i'm seeing good growth so far.

LED lighting has been around a long time. I feel the light path is too narrow, and the spectrum is off. They give you the * POP* color, but in the long term the corals start to suffer.

That may be true with some LED's, but my Finnex ray2 covers my entire 28 euro bowfront, and then some, without issue. It also has great Par, enough for me to be able to grow DHG if I wanted. I actually haven't had an issue with anything growing since I changed to them.

Maybe for larger tanks, then it may be a problem, but I think they are perfect for anything under 30, that's all I've been able to test them on so far.

Well I finally took the plunge last weekend and set up a sorority in my 23 gallon planted tank Mostly crowntail girls, but 1 or 2 halfmoons as well - and they are gorgeous things! Greedy too No aggression yet, but I'm keeping a watchful eye out.
The corys and the red cherry shrimp seem to be doing well too with the new neighbours
Just a couple of pics..
