Hello all,
I installed a four foot flourescent fixture above my aquarium and need
advice about tubes. I want to take photos and I also want to grow plants
(photos are most important but would like both). I know that the closer I
get to 5500 Kelvin the more like daylight the light is but will a
flourescent at 5500 Kelvin also grow plants well. Is there some other tube
or combinations that I should use for this? Thanks for any help.
