Is that a FWLR setup? Are your keeping any coarls in there?
How wide is your 90 gallon tank.. I would think 48" shoplight fixtures would make more sence if its a standard 90 gallon.. expesially since the ballasts will fire those 48" lamps as well and give you more light..
Edmonton Eskimo.. the "aquarium" NO
bulb is a GE 6500K T-12 lamp.. the standard daylight 6500K lamps are the same thing for less money.. and they dont make a "aquarium" NO
bulb in T-8 like they do with the daylight bulbs..
The T-8 is more effecent for overdriving, the bulb has less surfase area forcing more light per watt out of it.. kinda like the diffence between NO
and T-5.. HTH
