    12" T5

    I was building an 8 x 12 scrubber for a 46 gallon and was going to use two 12" T5s with reflectors but each bulb only puts out 8 watts. Does the T5 have to have as much wattage as a curly flouresent and reflector?

    Thanks, I wasn't sure if the T5's were more ''effecient'' with the light they produced.
