Help! I'm trying to decide on the best lights to get for my tank as they are going to need replacing in a couple of months! Tank is an Interpet ( also sold as Kent) River Reef 94. It takes 2 t5 36w compact fluorescents. When I got the tank it came with 2x daylight blues ( 50/50 daylight/actinic) and 2x blue moon (actinic). It normally has the daylight blues in during the day, an I sometimes swap for the actinics at night if I want to show off what's in there without having to run the main lights.
I'm considering changing the daylight blues for a standard daylight type bulb and running one of those and one of the actinics so I can have the choice without swapping bulbs. Can anyone advise if that's a good idea? Or should I just stick to the 50/50's?
Other option would be to modify the lid for a proper LED
setup, which I don't mind doing, but is the gain worth all the effort?
