What Color Moonlights

Going to add moonlights to my Nova Pro Extreme 48" fixture

I see they come in 2 colors white or blue. Which color is the best for this. also how many do i need to get to go across it?

Thanks
Patrick

Hey... I have the 36" version of that light. I have 2 Blue moonlights and I think I'll be adding 2 more eventually. Tank looks realy cool at night, but only the section directly below them get's illuminated(sp). Which moonlights are you going with? I bought the Current ones and they are quite hard to mount on that fixture. I ended up using Doublesided tape for now.

I'll snap a picture tonight if you want to see how mine looks with 2moonlights.

I can't advise on which color to go with, That's more a personal choice. My Uncle has a white moonlight on his FW tank and I really like the blue better.

Go with blue, I have blue and the water movement across the top with the reflection on the bottom makes it look amazing!

As promised, I took some pics last night in the Dark of my tank with only the moonilights on... YIKES it is difficult to do that..even with a high end camera. I need a Tri-pod .. I think I got 1 or 2 that came out OK

Anyway, I'll post them later when I get a chance.

sorry.. i know this isnt a saltwater tank.. but its the last one i had moonlights on.. id hate to see what the salt would do to the electrical... i saw what only freshwater did to mine lol.. here is a pic though.. tank was cycling... if you want look at the specs of my shots.. you could be able to use them to get a picture from your camera.
