The ballast has just died in my 48" Compact Fluorescent Twin Tube light fixture. It housed 2 GE 45851's bulbs which have been discontinued
so it's a sensible time to switch to something else. I loved these lights.
My first reflex was to pop an AH Supply 2x54watt Linear Kit into the old hood. Then I started researching bulbs & began to wonder if LED would be a good option at this point.
Can I get a good LED solution for about the same $$ as the AH Supply kit ($85) & 2 T5 bulbs (~$50 Geissman?)? I can manage a DIY kit with instructions, but am not an electrician.
My tank is a standard 55gal x 48" heavily planted. I'm currently subbing in a spare T5 6500K off the shelf bulb (backup) from my greenhouse & the color is way too green.
Thanks for any advise.
