    Default lights

    i have a question. im looking to buy a 48 inch AGA light strip for my 75 gallon. the one with 2 bulbs is T10 and runs 85 dollars. the one with 3 bulbs is T8 and runs 105. id like to have the three lights for 20 bucks more, but i see the aqua glows and power glows and such dont come in T8. My question is whats the different between the sizes(do they give more light? etc.) and will a T10 fit in a T8 fixture? Anyone who knows about this stuff, please respond. What would you suggest? much appreciated.

    From what Rusty nut said a T-8 yeilds more light for less energy.

    it does say in the description that they use less energy. im just wondering if they give off more or less light. t10 says 40W t8 is 32W. and if i want to get different bulbs than the ones it comes with, im wondering if the t10 will fit in the t8 fixture. i wish he would see this and give me his thoughts.
