24" Coralife Aqualight Double Power Compact - 130 watts
Bulbs: 2 x 65 watt, two 21" 65 watt 6,700°K (straight pin)
Dimensions: 24"L x 7"W x 2.5"H


Current USA Satellite Dual Compact Fluorescent, 2X65 Watt, 24 inch

One 65 Watt Dual Actinic (420nm/460nm) and one 65 Watt Dual Daylight (6,700K/10,000K) bulb
One lunar light
Cooling fan
Two on/off switches
Docking mounts: mounting legs to lift the Satellite light above the top of the aquarium

Price isn't a factor, I am also curious about this actinic blue light, what are the benefits? Also, whats the impact of having a 10k bulb instead of two 6.7k?

Actinic in a planted aquarium is useless. 10,000k is a brighter white. If price is not a factor, you may want to consider a T5HO setup. Look up TEK or Catalina fixtures. Sorry fro the briefness, I am extremely tired.
