It is blue very isn't it? Lol, its the stock light that came with the tank. I may swap it out, just wanted to get it up and running. The hardest thing for me is waiting for the cycle. I`ve never heard of the el nino either just snagged a bunch of top fin plants on a run. Pumpkins do sound good, I was thinking about some orange rillis for another set up and as long as I don't mix them I`m good right?
