    SPS without halides?

    T5s are, in many ways, better than halides... they just don't have the reputation or distribution. If you put a par meter at the bottom of a 24" tall tank, the par rating for T5s is better. AND they use slightly less electricity, AND the bulbs last longer. However, you can also grow SPS with...
