    Yip my recommendation is still for a 965 series bulb. Something like Osram's Biolux range would work. At that wattage it produces 1600lumen of light but more importantly it peaks very well in the...

    Well, I wasn't able to grab a nice shot of the entire school. The T8 lights just don't provide enough for good photos of fast moving fish. (Guess I'll need to upgrade those at some point :) )

    He didn't make it.
