The blue LEDS can not be used in conjunction with the 26w bulb. Single switch.
In a lot of instances, a bulb marked 6500k will probably have more light useful for plants than one marked 10000k. But that's just scratching the surface as kelvin temp doesn't tell you much of what you really need to know. Look up some posts by TPT member, Hoppy, and you'll learn all you'd need to know on that topic.
Also, here is one of our dealers 4 gallon using the cliplight w/ the blue/white bulb:

Can you use the 2 little LEDs for this in combination or are they on a separate Switch ?
Also, when you are talking about the White/ Blue Combo on the Bulb, is that a 10k ??
I know generally for Reefs, a 10k is more desirable. Granted the white is more predominate but for growing plants ?? Wouldn't the 65k be more benificial even though I have to agree the less yellow the better ...

|atomicjade||I used the blue/white light on my 2g Spec and it was beautiful, not overly blue at all and the moonlights are amazing... however it was too much for my little tank. I think it would be more than enough for the 5g, and it looks classy too!|

Energy Saving Epoch Questions
I have a Fluval Spec V and the lighting that came with it is pretty weak. I was wondering if this Epoch Cliplight would be good for my tank, as I'm trying to grow high light plants in it. I will have Co2 and will be dosing. The dimensions of the tank are, 17.2"L x 10.6"H x 6.3"D. Also, I really like the White color of LEDs and 6500k can sometimes look a bit too yellow to me. Would it be better to get the Blue/White bulb over the 6500k? Or is the Blue/White mainly for Reef tanks? And if I do get the Blue/White bulb, would it be suitable for plants like HC and hair grass?? Thanks for the help!!
