Just about to get my 120 up and running. I'm going to be running 4 T5's and 2 Hydra 26 HD's. For the T5's, I'm not sure if I should run 4 blue plus or 2 blue plus/2 actinic. Any suggestions? Also what light schedule/intensity levels for the Hydras? Thanks!

I've got a 120 with just two 26 hydras, do you think that's not enough?
I was adding the T5's to get full light coverage. I really like the hydra 26's, but I don't feel that they will fully cover that tank size. Do you have any shadowing issues with yours? What are you running for a light profile/intensity on yours? Thanks for your input.

Hard to say, because I have the mount but not the rails, which I can't find in stock anywhere, so they are on the glass. But I think they will cover once I get them mounted. the tank is 2x2x4. My profile has them only in the 60's, maybe up to 80. Definitely not maxed out.
