I have the Orbit PC's on my 55gal, I was wondering if the moon lights bother the fish. I also noticed when I have the actinics on, one of the two is brighter blue, is this normal, it says one is 460 nanometers and the other actinic is 420. I just wanted to make sure I didn't get a defect, BTW, I love these PC's, they look awesome! I still haven't got any coral yet though, need to finish up my LR. I was thinking of liverocks.com, which is better Gulf or Keys rock. Thanks for any advice!!!

My fish love the moon lights, well at least from what I can tell Your moonlights may be pointing at a slightly different angles that may account for the color difference. As for the rock I like the keys rock better, but it's really a personal choice. Do you prefer more critter or more color.

The actinic bulb in the orbit hood is a dual actinic. One side is 420nm and the other tube is 450nm. The look you see is normal.
