Hey guys, Recently purchased 6 x T5HO for my new three foot set up and lets just say wow, what a difference. Pretty much lights up my whole room haha. I have a problem however. Need to sell my current lights on my existing 3 foot set up, as someone has purchased them weeks ago, however went to swap them over tonight, and when I took out my old 4 x t8 lights, and put my new t5HO x 6 lights in, the discus becomed so scared and shy. Both of them instantly went to the bottom of the tank basically laying in the substrate and both hugging the corner of the tank. As soon as this happened I immediately turned the lights off. Has anyone else come across this. I know they were shocked but I left it on for 30 seconds and they did not seem happy or look happy and I could not leave it on knowing they are unhappy. I guess the only thing to do is keep the old lights on until I purchase another set of t8's or the likes? Has anyone come across similar findings when swapping lighting over in existing tanks? Sure as hell was a wake up to me at how bright 6 x t5HO lights are haha!
