Question with adding T5 retrofit to 40B


Recommended Posts

I am currently running a Radion XR30 over my 40b and am planning to build a canopy so I can add some T5 light because the current coverage with just the radion is a little low even with the wide angle lenses. 



Is there a kit where I could add one bulb on either side of the Radion? If not should I add two, two bulb kits (4 total bulbs) or just one kit. 


Also what type of bulb combination would you use?

There are a few out there. If it was me I would just go with a single bulb kit from sunlight supply. They sell a kit that is made for plants and you just swap out the bulb for an aquarium T5. I paid 40 for a 24" T5 set up I think. I know there is a thread on them here somewhere.


They are made to daisy chain together so one connects to another.
