Hi there, I'm trying to ID a bulb that I got from Pet Supplies Liquidators. I ordered a lighthouse 55W with a 6500K bulb. They sent me a bulb that said actinic on the outside of the box. I told them so and they offered me to resend the bulb. They did but it looks like I got the exact same bulb as the one before. The second bulb was sent without any box or cover, just the naked bulb, so I don't have the description. However, both bulbs have the same specs on their bases, they read AQUALUX 55W/PG+10KK . I assume that what I got is a 10000K bulb. I have a freshwater planted tank and don't need actinic bulbs, so I want to make sure that I can use any of these two bulbs. I just want to know what kind of bulb I have. Does anyone recognizes these specs that I read from the tubes. This is my first purchase of CF bulbs so I don't know too much about them. TIA.
