    I have 2 x housing EXO terra type so i have put globes in that promotes the word NATURAL lighting with full spectrum not sure if this is ok or bad for fish.. as everywhere you look on information on these products it always relates back to Frogs Turtles or Reptiles ( snakes,Lizards ). But it has information on the label good for plant growth. pics attached. The globes were damn expensive compared to standard halogen style.
    Also running a 180cm strip light with spectrum lighting above the 6 Ft Tank.
    Sorry about the Amber colour with the water at the moment as the tannin has bleached out from the Wood/timber. hoping this will be resolved after more water changes???

    The globes have UVA only. no UVB so i was thinking that UVB could harm fish or cause them to change colour ?? there were globes with UVA with UVB 5 strength which i was almost going to try with the low 5 strength. ???? UVB 10 or 15 which would be more suitable for reptiles ??
