Can you have too much Actinic in a reef tank

Hi all,

Just a quick question

I've recently changed the 14000k 24w marine white T4's to the 15000k 24w blue white. I also run 1 T8?

Cheers

Andi

The answer is no. But its hard to see if you have all actinic. Does not take great pics either.

Cool,

I was more concerned that I swapped to blue whites instead of the daylights but looking at it now they still produce 15000k so seems all good
