I would go with an even split as far as white and blue. 2 of each is standard protocol.

The fish need it light is better quality and has better reviews. Plus the mounts are much better. Thats the one thing that stunk on the odyssea, the mounts.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Hmmm, would it be safe to paint that aluminum black?
Also....would a 6 bulb fixture just be complete overkill?

If youre going fish only then 6 bulbs would be overkill in my opinion. You can get away with a strip light with fish only.

Bought that to help secure rock work. It's still soaking. How is the scaping looking? Live rock from an LFS will fill it out. An additional 10 lbs or so...
