I have a 55g Tank.
I just purchased and Installed DIY VHO
They are URI Bulbs, 1x Super Atinic, 1x Aqua Sun. Both 110W.
The Ballast is a VRO AS220, and everything is installed under my Canopy.
I Bought 2 Ballasts, and 4 lamps, but decided I just didn't have enough room for all 4 lamps, so I only installed 2.
My question is, After firing up the lights, The tank looks REALLY purple.
Before these lights, I had a T-5 Setup with 1x atinic, 1x 10k, 26watts each.
Is this Purple color normal? Is it something that changes as the light breaks in? Does it need to warm up?
My old T5's look more blue/white.
Also URI offeres a 50/50 bulb, I am wondering if this would be a better choice?
Right now I don't have corals, but will be wanting to add some soft corals soon, and I know spectrum can affect their health, so I want to make sure my lights are operating normal.
