    which is a better light?

    get the t-5 with ind. reflectors, u might be better off buying a fixture with them, since they're like $20 each. So that $80 extra.

    Has anyone ever heard of Aqua Cool bulbs?

    Their 14k right? I used them for a day but it was to much blue with the actinic. I dont think the light is the problem. but if ur water is ok then try and accom. the corals to the new light. 6hr one day 7,8,9 etc. That might help.

    the best way i found to get a clear plasic hose on a power head with clamps. inside the tank or sump. and i couldnt find the right size nylon ones. i got a hose that was a size smaller than the output on the pump, and heated it with a lighter. it doesnt burn it just heats it up so you can fit it...
