    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    You should be able to grow acropora and other sps corals fine now. Do you need to update or upgrade your bulbs, change out reflectors? The Razor is nice, I would pick it up if the price is right. Can't have too many lighting fixtures.:p

    Agreed! The T5s will grow anything you could want and so can the LED in OP. How much will new bulbs run you when you need to replace and how much is the razor? If it is not much more I would get the LEDs. I really like my LEDs so much more than the T5s.

    6 months used for a LED fixture is nothing when it should not have any problems for several years. I don't know how much those bulbs are but you will probably spend more than the $250 within 2 years.
