I personally like 50/50 bulbs set in the front of the tank to shade out the back of the tank in my FOWLR's....

It depends on how much algae you would like...;)


I like the 10K bulbs from Coralife myself. Just make sure that your lights are on a timer, even though fish don't react too much to spectrum or intensity (within reason) they do react to the light cycle and so it should be stable.

have fun,
