So shall I got with one 10000k and one 6500k, or both 6500k?
I'm pretty sure my old light had both 10000k but I can't really remember...

I will be going with 3 6500k and 1 10,000k bulb on my fixture, but that's obviously not an option for you. Just go with a mix, then you can see which one you like best.

I think I'm going to go with the one 10000k and the other 6500k. If I really don't like the look of it I'll order some other bulbs.

I can't believe you've been without a tank for all this time! Do you at least have a jar with a plant in it? On a window sill? Home to some endlers? That was my dorm fix when I couldn't afford all this fancy shmancy gear.

I can't wait to see what you make of this new tank! Let me know if you need some trimmings, I might just have some of what you need to get the ball rolling.

haha , 10000k + 6700k is nice IMO.

I have just 10K's and IMO it doesn't bring out enough, while all 6700k's is too yellow.

I had nothing. It was really horrible. Once I graduated we moved house then a month later I moved up here.
Thanks cintamas. (: I will be sure to shoot you a PM when it starts coming together!


Kayen- Yeah I think it will work out well. I didn't dislike my old bulbs though and I'm pretty sure they were both 10000k.

I wouldn't get those lil pipes in that ebay link Mizu. I got the 13 mm version from the same place and the outflow aimed too far down and blew my AS I Powder everywhere. I ended up getting ones made by FLO and sold by Aquatic Magic, but i don't know if they make a 17 mm version.

Good to see you're still around. I noticed you were MIA and was about to post something about the people I've noticed were missing (Mizu, spynet, and Jentheplantgeek). Get some pics up as soon as that tank arrives!

Ah alright. Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll use my old outflow for now since my tank is going to be pretty shallow.

I agree with selection of 6700K + 10000K. At least for the lamps that I have used the cooler lamp in this combination has enough green to bring out plant colors, but the 10000K adds some whiter light which makes the whole thing look more natural and lessen yellowing.

hyrdophyte- I figured that adding that one 6500K bulb and one 10000k bulb would bring out more color too. I hate the really yellow tint you sometimes get.

Thanks talontsiawd. Crossing my fingers for a nice tank. lol.
