Arcadia 18W FL

Setting:
32 gal Planted tank.
Presurise CO2
Current lighting, 2 PL (36W) + 1 Glo Light (18W)


Going to replace my 1x Glo Light tube.
Though of replacing it with Arcadia's.
Any advise or recomended model for arcardia FL tube?


To be more specific, Arcadia product a Tropical lamp (Pink light)
and a Freshwater lamp (white/yellowish), which or these two are more suitable to mix with PL?

TIA

Mix and match them. I know very few 'experienced' plant keepers that only use one temp. of bulb.
I hate the pink look, so I do 50% pink, 50% 6700K on my tanks.

it's totally up to you. some people like the pinkish color, and run all pink bulbs. My point was that you can mix things up without causing any problems.
