I know Ive hunted around for these sorts of pics in the past

I run a 36" CL Lunar Aqualight with 1x96w sunpaq dual daylight (67K/10K) from 1-10pm with a midday burst 96w CL (67K) from 3-7pm, I think I highlight the fish colors, and still get a lil bit of that "crisp whiteness" but mostly yellowish?

I will try to snap some shots tomorrow after my water change to show my tank with the 1 bulb on, and then one with both bulbs on....tank is filthy now
i think those pictures are FANTASTIC and need to be included in a sticky somehow... they really show the color difference of those lights

I've used a Coralife PC Quad 96w 6700K, once, exclusively on a 10 gallon HC iwagumi tank for about 6 months. The HC grew well but kind of vertically. With that much watts per gallon, you would think it would grow horizontally.
I just changed my light fixture about two weeks ago to 2 NOVA dual 20w HO T5 using all 10000K bulbs. Less watts per gallon then before. Also I had killed all my HC due to a blackout due to a fight with green water so, I replanted brand new HC. Within two weeks my HC is growing faster and horizontally.
I now thinking about adding 10000K bulbs to my other tanks.
