    They look good, but its stil T5 with a couple of leds thrown in! although I do like the dimmable option but again can only benefit if you also purchase the computer, and the price tag :wideyed: :wideyed:

    Lighting has to be moving towards LEDs, for a host of reasons, glad Arcadia are getting on board, even if this is a halfway house.

    I saw a massive tank at FoF with 10 banks of LEDs, the light was so clear and even (when Tom M noticed) projected a very clear shadow on the substrate of a discus. It does look much better but understand for plant use it's not the best?

    Yeah but these units are basically T5 luminaires with a couple of LEDs thrown in! not really much on the LED side! ;)
    They do look cool though ;)
