Hi

I am just setting up my first planted tank. I am a Reefer and I know lighting is very different.

I have bought a ballast for 2x 24w T5s but wondering what bulbs to buy.

The tank is a 600mm cube

Try "James C cheap fluorecent tubes" at the top of this lighting thread Some of James choices might be discontinued but there will be alternatives but gives you a idea. I have iquatics tropical tube just now unable to (discontinued) get arcadia plant pro. Its a pinkish hue to it. Most tubes in the daylight spectrum look good to our eyes .

Thanks for that, it was perfect to see which bulbs gave the best colour.

I ended up buying about 10 tubes so I can now see which I prefer.

That’s the first benefit over reefing the lights are soooo much cheaper
