    Well subject says it all, light comes with 6500 K bulbs but I know will need a few higher then that.

    How about 10-12 K bulbs white of cause I guess.

    4 Bulb light.

    I guess all 54 watt bulbs are the same length and watt so HO.

    All fresh water, over a 75 open top.

    DIY hangers also.

    Easy nice and the part I like best Cheap.:p

    Thanks

    Jeff

    I'm going to run GE starcoats in the 6500K range over my grow-out tank. I've tried Geisemann aqua flora mixed with middays, and they worked well.

    I've run 2 giesemann middays and 1 aquaflora, plus 1 KZ fuji purple at the front position. Really brings out red hues and the colours of fish/shrimp.
