How long would you say this change kept your squamosa in a dormant stage? I recently switched to LEDs from T5s in December out of necessity as well and my blue squamosa has stopped growing when it was growing really well before. I've also noted that coloration was much better under T5s, but perhaps it's still adjusting and the mantle will look better when growth comes back.
