Coralife 48" T5

I have a freshwater tank but got the saltwater light.
Will this affect my fish?
Could I still grow plants under it?
If somebody has the freshwater version T5 could they post a pic I'd like to see what it looks like in comparison.

I think the fixtures are the same, what's important is what kind of lighting you use.
For instance, Actinic lighting, which is used in SW, isn't of any use to plants in FW.
In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS
