The light I have now are a 6500k 32 watt bulb .. And my tank looks green . I took a glass of water out with a drinking glass and it looks perfectly clear . I'm not sure if its the new bulb or my tank itself ..

And I have African cichlids in this particular tank.. My Oscar is in a different tank and has a different set up with the lights and that tank looks perfect beside him tearing up the sand every other day
