Just curious on peoples thoughts or experiences on this. I'm working building a 75G 48 x 18 x 18 Dutch planted tank. So far I have looked at putting in a 6300K Regular and a 10000K XB (Lumen Blaster):icon_eek:. I'm getting a little torn on a 13000K vs the 10000K for color and showing some of the fish and planets to bring more blues and enhanced greens.

But, will the shift from 10K to 13K be not as beneficial to the plants or should I just add a 13K for viewing when needed?


Any recommendation for a lighting controller?



Thoughts?


Cheers

I have both a 6300k and 10000k on my 46g bow currently. I had a single 6300k and love the color but I needed higher light to. Hit the front of the tank so got the 10000k. The two together produce awesome color. I have no experience with 13k but I the 10m is certainly a lot stronger and bluer than the Dutch which produces very warm light.

I run both of mine on an apex controller and love it.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply,

Sad to say I'm finally just getting around to this now! Went with the 10K.

Cheers!:thumbsup:

IMO the 10000K is WAY too cool for me. I immediately returned it for a second Dutch XB. I run 2x Dutch XBs on my 75 gallon and they look good. I would honestly like even more of a warmer feel though.

Personal preference really. You can always return a fixture if you don't like the color.
