I'm trying to acquire that natural daylight light look for my tank. It's a 30 gal long? 36x12x16. I currently have 2x34 watts T5HO 10000k + 6500k. The look I'm looking for is to have the lights almost micmic natural daylight. I'm at work and don't have a picture to show so I'll put one up in a few hours. Thanks

That's the color combination I've always used, and I like it a lot. It's a very white light. So white that sometimes reds get washed out, which is something to consider if you are featuring the reds in your tank. But for a mostly green layout, it's the whitest white you'll get, IMO, which shows the true color of all the shades of green in the tank.
