What do DS, DB and BB mean?
 
Im looking at purchasing a FInnex Ray II 24" fixture for my tank but Im not sure what the DB, DS and BB mean. Can someone help me out?

Thanks,
Jill

DD is what you want for freshwater (2 rows of 'daylight' white) The others are usually used for saltwater as they have high intensity actinic blue added.

also - are you injecting Co2? how big is your tank?
The Ray2 is very powerful, have you also seen the Fugeray? Looks the same, but cheaper and lower power.

DS - 7000k / 7000k
DD - 7000k/ 10000k
DB - 10000k / Actinic
BB - Actinic / Actinic

Whoops! I was off a little, I guess DS or DD would be good, DS would give "richer" colors, DD would be brighter, crisp white. I would suggest the DS

Thanks for the help. I have a 26 gallon bowfront that is 21" high. No CO2. Should I look at the Fugeray?

Fugeray is actually too low since 26 bowfronts are almost 22 inches high. I would go for the rayII to have more plant options. I was going to upgrade to ray II, but now I decided just to upgrade the tank lol

OK, thanks. Ive pretty much decided on the RayII now to decide on DS or DD.
