Okay I Have some questions on what effects do some t5 lights do?
I have a current USA 4x54w t5 light fixture ,
2 bulbs 10,000k
2 bulbs actinics
I know the 10,000k are more or less to simulate day light.
But what do the actinic lights do??? Are they there just for a more blue look??
Or do they really help in adding a energy source to the aquarium ???
I'm asking cause I was thinking of switching my lights around To:
1 bulb 12,000k
1 bulb trueblue
2 true actinics
I was told when I first started in this hobby about a 1 yr ago
that they where just for looks BUT then I was told by somebody else that they do much more and are important ... And that person has a very well established 280g tank so I went with what he said.
soooo in short what do you guys think about actinic lights??
