Help needed for aquarium lighting

8 years 10 months ago - 8 years 10 months ago #32224 by BCParker
I'd keep the 10000K bulbs for if you like the blue look and replace the pure actinic ones with something warmer, normal daylight bulbs 6500K.

you'll still have the blue saltwater look.

Agree with Fishinmn03, actinic bulbs are for coral growth, or something like that. You should probably go with something like daylight bulbs.

So I say to her……There is plenty of stuff at the house for the baby to eat!!!! I REALLY need this fish……

Hoppy, I'm no expert on lighting, but the blue actinic bulbs are used more in marine aquariums.

For my 150G I have dual fixtures with two bulbs each. In each fixture I have a Super Actinic(36" T12 30W)and a Actinic White(36" T12 30W 12K) with Maswa Dubosi in it. Is that a good choice for bulbs? If not, what should I be using? I ask because it just looks very blue and yes, I know the fish are blue but their color just doesn't seem to "pop".
