I've been doing some research on what type of lighting to buy. I've see
some set-ups for $300 with VHO lamps. I plan on lighting a 55 gal. tank.
I could buy two twin shop lights for $15. Two cool white and two warm flo.
bulbs would run c. $6. This would give me a decent spectrum for minimal
Is there any great advantage to HO and VHO set-ups? The cost difference is
huge. Any input?
