Took the advice and got an all black background today while I was swapping out the light fixture. Also bought some seachem Clarity, doesn't seem to have had an effect yet but it's only been about 30 minutes.

The fixture came with 2 T5 18W bulbs, one is 6,700K daylight and the other is the aqueon "colormax" which I am not sure what K rating that carries, something tells me they should both be the 6,700K daylights but I wanted to find out more before I wasted 20 dollars on a bulb I might not need. So any experience on the colormax t5?

Here is how it looks with background, also that white tube/bubble wall is temporary while I cycle, from what I know the additional o2 in the water will encourage BB growth.
