I have done some reasearch and have found that the light on my new hood is 100% daylight, but they make ones that are 50/50. 50% daylight, and 50% 03
light. Can anyone explain to me what 03
light is? Would this type of bulb be less bright for my fish?
I used to have 50 watts of incandescent lighting, and it wasn't NEARLY as bright as 15 watts of this 100% daylight fluorescent bulb. I was told that's because fluorescent is much more effecient, but both my fish prefer a darker tank. This light is just so bright.
If I was looking for a light that looks good when it's on, but is not very bright, and I don't care about plants or anything, can you post me a link to what I should be looking for?
For example, there is an auction on ebay for a light that im guessing is 100% 03
light, with no daylight. Can someone explain to me which each of the different parts mean?
T12 Lamps 15 Watts
I obviously know what 15w is but whats t12 lamps?
Super Actinic R .03
again, what is this 03
light? (other than it's actinic like the acronym tells me. haha)
This lamp has a Gold End
does that make a difference?
Thanks as always. I love everyone on this board!
