Aqueon T5NO

Should I go with two 14W-6700K Bulbs
OR two 14W colormax,
OR one of each?

Looking at broader spectrum from 6700Ks I'm considering two of these instead of alternating or two 14W Colormax.

go with the lights that light up the tank in a way that you like better!

Aqueon T5NO Lighting

Just wanted to add my two cents as I have an Aqueon T5NO with a Colormax and a pink colored plant bulb directly on my 29 gal planted tank for many months now. These are the bulbs that came with the light by the way and with only Excel dosing, powdered micro ferts, 50% water change weekly and no CO2 I have had great success in getting good plant growth and little to no algae. Probably not the best lighting on the market but so far this has been sufficient for plant growth and the health of the fish. Good Luck.
