Should be fine for a mbuna tank. It better be a big tank or you may have algae issues if you run the lights all at once.

It's going to be really bright but you can certainly do it. I'd opt for a two or three bulb option personally but you can give it a go. You may want to ask in the ciclid forums for advice on this. The hardware forums don't get much traffic sadly.

so i have had this light for about 4 weeks now and it is phenominal a bit of algae growth but it really lights up the fish and it was so worth the $110 i spent on it. the lunar bulbs are really nice at night and the actinic is very good for the morning. I use the 10ks for viewing hours and i love this light great buy so far
