I am going to order this lamp: Fishneedit 3' T5HO

I'll run co2 if I have to.

My question is which bulbs to get with it? I can get it with:

"All Blue"
"1 White and 1 Blue"
"1 White and 1 Pink"
"All White"
"All Pink"

I can choose the k rating for the white bulb:

"6700K"
"10000K"
"14000K"

That's about all of the info they provide. Which option should I get? I was thinkinh one white 6700K and one Pink.???

it's all just personal taste (well... not the blue)

i personally think the 6,700K+10,000K gives the tank a nice crisp look. the 6,700K+pink gives off a warm look. it's up to you.

For me, I really like the 6700/10000 combo. But if I HAD to have a pink, I'd go 10,000/pink. I did that before with T8's and really liked it.

Tell you what, GBR's under a pink bulb.....to die for.

This combination has been proven to produce excellent growth:
Aqua Flora T5 HO , full-spectrum 6000K Midday
Giesemann T5 HO full-spectrum 6000K Midday

Combined, It produces a very natural look in the aquarium.
