I am starting with 3- 24 LED 6x9 heatsinks on my 180g, underlit probably but I have planned to suppliment w/ t5 from the begining., but with my rock work it should do the job (as I have 3 "pilliars/ piles") t5s are mostly for filling in the gaps between heatsinks and added color spectrum (didn't get red led's, so I plan to run either purple+ or coral+ bulbs to get some of the red spectrum)
What are you keeping for corals? Your bracing divides your tank into 3 sections I gather.....I wish mine was like that.
