Casey,

You've run a lot of these different lights and combos. What would you suggest?

The tank is already wired and ready to go, I just need to swap bulbs. Right now it's two actinics and two actinic/white (50/50). The color is alright, it's just not bright enough for that to be the only lighting. I'm assuming that if I swap the actinics for 50/50's (making it four 50/50's only) it will have about the same look only brighter.

How's that for fish color and viewing? :)

Darn man I wanted you to have 6 bulbs :( Well if you can only get 4 then I would just stick to what you have then it is a good combo but could be better if we had more room:)
