Hello, after searching the internet I finally found the solution for the crappy little standard bulb in the Eclipse 12 system that didn't involve spending extra money or constructing a retrofit.
I found 2 bulbs that will fit the hood but need help deciphering between the two options. I'd just like to know how either one will look in my tank.
The standard bulb i'm currently using is just a plain white 5000K that casts a yellowing tone over the crushed coral and live rock - not attractive for my saltwater.
Here the are 2 options:
Coralife 10K Daylight Compact Fluorescent 6 inch - 13 Watt Aquarium Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
Coralife 50/50 Compact Fluorescent 6 inch - 13 Watt Aquarium Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
One is a Coralife 13 Watt - 6" PL Type Base 50/50 Compact Fluorescent Lamp - PL Type Base combine 50% 10,000K with 50% True Actinic 03 Blue phosphors for essential biological reactions.
and the other is a Coralife 13 Watt - 6" 10,000K Compact Fluorescent Lamp - PL Type Base 10,000K lamps provide high-intensity, purified super daylight that simulates the midday sun. It contains rare-earth color enhancing phosphors to emit sparkling, blue-white rays.
I don't know my lights very well so if someone could tell me how each light might look in my FOWLR
tank, I would appreciate it! thanks!
