Bulb recommendations

Time to replace the stock T5 bulbs that I have in my 36 fixture. The light presently has 4ea 6500K. Its a 40 Gallon tall with C02 and EI dosing.

Happy with the growth but was curious what others are using or recommend.

Default Coralife light bulbs

I have a 24" wide tank and 18" deep. I use two coralife 6700k bulbs for years and do not that bad. I seen other people use led lights and really get alot a algae build up quick with a 8 hr day. I run my lights on the average of 10 hrs a day.
