Sure will bud and a hell of a lot cheaper this way and what I'm seeing about the power from the E5 being very close to t5 it seems a no brainer

I was looking at these last week, they actually look great and give excellent coloration in a tank. Think this is the way forward :)

Are these a direct replacement for t5s using the same fittings , do they run cooler than t5s and what do they cost . I recently purchased a lamp unit with 4x 39 watt t5s in it ,but had to modified the lid because of the amount of heat they give off

Yes no modifications needed just put them straight in
They will run cooler, the t5 heat is absolutely crazy and can be a pain over heating the water If their to close to it
I'm still waiting for an actual Irish price, but if I remember correctly they will be around 3-4 times the price of a t5, sounds like their expensive bit not when you add up 8yrs of t5's
Also waiting to hear when we should see them over here they said the demand for them is crazy and their working on getting more ready

Soon as I hear more about price and time I'll post it here straight away
Or if anyone else has more info please spill!!

Just had a look on google marine tubes 3ft 69 us dollars and 4 ft 79 dollars , a tropical will soon also be available. So approx 3 times the cost of a t5 good value if they are as good as they say and that they do in fact last 8 years

I really taught the blues look fantastic on it, plus the camera wasn't even setup to see it properly so i say it looks even more amazing in real life.

It's a fair price for the life expectancy and yes I really would like to see them in really life don't think any camera can work properly with strong blue, I know when my blues are on ones camera in my house can get a good pic
The biggest pain about these is waiting for them and not knowing when we can get them grrrr
