here is a side by side comparison of a t5 with coral bulbs vs a 1k with an eye hortilux. They are 5 weeks apart. Im liking the t5 much more. Both lights do bleed a little into each side. thats all the room I have. Also I have since lowered the t5 and put the ducting back up on the 1k. was doing maintenance and cleaning .
I will document all this to put an end to t5 haters. the t5 is so much more brighter than my 1k
using 3 gal pots and feed guano tea thats it
