I just replaced some bulbs that were in my 55 gallon, It houses two 18inch 15w bulbs, for a total of 30w. The ones that were in it didn't specify anything other than 15w, aqua rays, made by GE. So I went to see what I could by to replace them as my plants are not thriving. (Anubias, Java fern, and Java Moss, not dying, but not really growing either)
This is what I got, tell me if I did wrong, cause I can and will take them back.
Tropic sun 5500k Daylight T8 bulbs, still each 15w. So then I wondered if this is even an upgrade or not? I saw 6500k bulbs, but she didn't recomend them if you have fish? What do you think? I suppose I could return them and get a whole new unit for the HO
bulbs, but as I understand it, I wouldn't need HO
for my plants anyways?
Thanks for your help again!!
