    Why not keep the t5s and just add OR bars for supplemental pop

    No experience with any of then, but the orphek light bars look like a really nice option.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by "pop"? How big is your tank and what type of corals are you trying to grow? I have 3 Radion G4's which i supplement with 2 60" Blue+ T5 bulbs. I have a mostly SPS system and really like volume of light T5's bring to the more linear trajectory of light LED's put out. That said, seems like i see a lot people with T5's supplement with Reefbrites but you have the Radion's already so not certain of your lighting layout.

    Tru Dat , colours will considerably different depending on lights .have your LFS turn the blues off so you can see what your buying .

    I use the Orphek bars. I got the all blue ones, but had them put four white diodes in each because I donít like the winded look. Love them and they add a huge pop.
