Need thoughts on this light fixture.
Was thinking about getting another 55g tank and someone offered me a stand and fixture fairly cheap. 48" coral light fixture with 4 21" compact flourescents in it, also built in moonlighting. The 2 bulbs are 12,000k and 2 are 460k. I believe they are 65watt each. Getting them for about $50 range.
The new 55g would be another fw plant tank, think I can get away with using the 12000k bulbs for the plants? Running just 2 of them would give me 130 watts over the tank.
Thoughts? Suggestions? If nothing else I could probably trade the bulbs for ones that will work, with someone locally.
