Had bought one of these recently for my 40 gallon breeder tank, it was the 36 inch version obviously. And honestly I'm not really diggin' it... I don't really like how bright it is or at least the way the light looks.

Has anyone else had anything come up like this with these fixtures? I'm currently trying to sell it online to get my money back lol

I would try switching the bulbs out, what do you think the light is too much red? Im guessing you have the 6700k and roseate combo for FW? The aquaticlife reflectors are quite good.

It comes down to personal preference but I've had the same fixture over my 40 breeder and didn't think it was bright enough! The look of T5's really brings out the color of plants and fish. You should see if you like the look of LED's that shimmer. I decided to add some Kessils in addition to the T5 and I feel like it really gives the tank a different perspective with the shadows and what not. Just some food for thought.
