atinics

I just looked at the order my husband made for our vho retro kit and appearently the bulbs are one 72" blue atinic and the other is a 72" white atinic. Is this right? I thought one was sopposed to be "atinic" and the other a regular flourecent...or is it just that?

the "actinic white" is a 50/50 bulb and the super actinic is well...just actinic. IMO, the actinic and actinic white, make a very nice combination for a SW tank.

Great! And so it will be a good combo for corals as well?

Provided it's enough light for the corals, then yeah, the spectrum is fine. I can't think of a 72" tank though that I would only use 2 72" bulbs on....I'd go with at least 4 for a 125 and that would still be limiting on the inverts you could keep.

Yes I know, but I am only stocking the tank with corals with moderate to low lighting requirements and placing them directly under the bulbs. The way I have my tank set up, everything is placed in the middle, I have wide open spaces to the front and back, infact the spaces take up about 2/3 of the tank. If I decide to purchase more rock and spread out the base a little bit I will of course buy more lighting.

I also have 48" 2x80w that I am mounting, I realize this isn't much, however it does bump it up a bit
