    both my tanks run t5s. I can stay enough about them. I have tried all kinds of bulbs and ended up with a mix of URI and Giesemann. No shimmer but i can live with it.

    on the main tank 2 are on IC 430
    3 are on what ever ballast comes with a retro tek lighting.

    on the frag tank 2 are on what ever ballast comes with the tek lighting again. i can check when i get home.

    they might be sunlight supply ballast.

    Bob,
    Nice frag tank you got going there!

    I'm lookin' at setting up a 55g w/T5's frag tank. There is a big price difference between a 4 x 54w TEK fixture and an IceCap 4 x 54w retro kit. Could you tell a big difference between an IceCap run bulbs and TEK?

    Thanks.

    I don't see any differences but i am sure some else might say that the IC over drives them more. I am very happy with the Tek stuff. Sorry i am not more help.

    I understand that it is a 33g, I was wondering what the dimensions are.

    48 1/4 x 12 3/4 x 12 7/8 ?

    Sorry about the unclear question.

    yes it is only 12 inches tall and 48 inches long. it's a nice shallow tank. I made the stand really tall so i don't have to bend over to see in the tank.
