I might have over-looked this but.......I went out and bought the f32t8 ballast and 2 48" 4100k bulbs which are quite yellow.....currently have the ballast driving one lamp......my question is will the ballast drive one/two of the plant and aquarium bulbs from home depot?....those bulbs are t12's.....or do i need a ballast designed for driving t12's? and another question that i dont quite understand.....on a earlier post it was mentioned that 4100k bulbs will do ok if you have "alota" light output or something along those lines.....is this true?.....or should i look around for 2 t8's with 6500-10000k range?.....sorry is the post seems a bit weird i am very tired....=(
Thankyou,
Chris
