Just look on the back of the packages and find the one that has a spectrum rating of 6500K or right in that general area. It is a floodlamp with a flourescent coil in the middle covered by a glass dome. Also the kalvin rating is in fine print on the back edge I think.

I also vote for no fuge, no light. Maybe let sponges grow or something. IMO: fuge is just a mere toy and one more thing to deal with. I honestly don't see any major advantages ( over water changes and good skimming) except for fish like mandarins that would need a high pod population which I just avoid and call it a day.......

ok then, if no Fuge I think the Home Depot light is still an excellent choice for "under the stand lighting" :lol:

I have the world's fattest group of tangs, and it might have something to do with the fresh vegies every day. It is amazing how much nicer a tang looks when it is full of seaweed.

That's the one I'm running. Got it off-the-shelf at my HD in woodbury. They also have the replacement bulbs too.
