Hey All,

I have a new 2 x 24W T5 HO ZooMed light unit coming, and I am wondering what pair of bulbs to get to match with the 1 x 24W T5 HO GLO unit I already have in which I run the MARINE-GLO Actinic bulb.

I plan on keeping soft corals with PERHAPS an Acropora that would be sit at the very top of the tank.

Is another actinic bulb necessary or should I go with a pair of T5 HO's in the 10000K range?

Thanks.

10000k T5s are a little too yellow IMO. ATI BluePlus or Giesemann Aquablue plus give nicer color and will grow everything. If you go with any sps towards the top I would use 2 aquablue plus in the new fixture and leave an actinic in the old.
