    Sounds like NO lighting. I'd suggest a 10K lamp if you can find it, but 6,500K is likely more attainable.

    It'd be a bit of a drive, but I've got a 2 tube 4' long NO fixture collecting dust at home. (I'm in Hull). I'll have to double check but from memory it's got a 10K and an actinic in it. Might be a daylight & actinic tho. I'll through both bulbs in.

    If you're interested, PM me.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    A 50/50 URI VHO. Great to look at.

    If you are going with Hagen stuff, the Powerglo is a good looking bulb or the Aquaglo- which will bring out the reds on the fish a little, but is a little more dim that the powerglo. Coralife makes good looking bulbs as well- the 50/50 or 10 k would be best
    You really have to look at the bulb to decide..
