Just picked up T5 hybrid kit for my v2+
Was curious what others are running as far as bulb/spectrum and what spectrum you are finding to be most successful with shrooms?

How many T5's? I like 75% blue plus with 25% coral plus
I got the 4 bulb aquatic life hybrid.
They where out of stock on coral plus and checking out my seneye I decided to go with purple plus and actinic as it seemed thats what I was lacking and needed to supplement.
I am finding alot of my shrooms react negatively to heavy royal and cool blue intensity. I run my whites on my v2+ alot higher than most.
I took a pic of spectrum graph from seneye.
Just trying to get the peak to slide to the left a bit.
I guess I'm going to see how things look and react and go from there.
Kit is already on the way.

I just got an ATI powermodule hybrid 4x24 for my new build, so we will see how it does vs my all led setup :)

I got it used and i think it has a purple plus, coral plus and 2 blue pluses staggered in there.
Havent ran it over the tank though....
 

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
