I recently bought a 3 bulb fixture off ebay and I really like it. It's a cheap brand, oddysea, but it's good so far and is half the price of similar fixtures.

Will look into that. A 3 bulb fixture sounds nice. You could do white,blue and that rose color or whatever they call it. I bet that would look sweet!

Normally you won't find the pink bulbs and actinic (Blue) bulbs together because the actinics are for saltwater and the pink ones are for freshwater planted, but you might be able to mix and match.

Trying to find a 3 bulb fixture now having a hard time. I'd like to see all three lights on at the same time. Bet it would look killer.
