Aquarium Advice needs your pics!!!

In many applications on both sides of this hobby the color temperature of your lighting is preference. Basicly if you provide the intensity the color (with in reason) doesn't matter. Ever wanted to change your lighting, but didn't know what the bulb combination you wanted to try would look like? Ever wanted to get a look at a particular bulb before you laid out the cash for it? Well we are trying to help you in that endeavor

We have started a new gallery dedicated to lamp color comparison. The gallery is broken down by Type and then color temperature. What we need from you guys is the pictures to fill it up. Right now the entire gallery has 3 pictures in it, we need more. This is a project that spans the disciplines, FW or SW you want your tank to have the look you like. So what we need from you is to post you pics to this thread, along with the pic of your tank we need to know...
1) Bulb type/types
2) Number of bulbs
3) wattage of bulbs
4) manufacturer of bulbs
5) Color temerature of bulb/s (K rating)
6) ballast running the bulb/s, if known
7) What size tank it's on

If you are running multiple bulb types, turn one set off and take pics of them individually as well as together. We need as much detail as you can provide, the only requirement of the pic is that it accurately depicts the color of your tank. Once your pics have been downloaded, we will post a link to your pic/pics in the gallery and you can remove the picture from your upload quota.

Hare is a link to the gallery, once we got some pics in there there will be a link to it on the homepage Bulb Color Comparison Gallery The only people that can add pics to this gallery are mods and admins, so post your pics in this thread or in the regular gallery and provide us a link and we will put the pics in the color comparison gallery.

Thank you for your help, this should be a fun and useful project!!!
