View Full Version : Best K rating for FOWLR nano tank?

06/06/2008, 09:09 PM
I am working of getting a list of stuff that I need to buy for my 10 gallon nano project.

I am looking at getting either 10,000K,18,000K or 20,000K 24" bulb.

Which would be best? Thanks

you really don't need a specific K value if you are going to have fish with live rock. You can just use a regular stirp flourecent light if you don't want any corals.

just what ever you like, I would say 20k will make the fish colors look nice. 10k will be just white bright, anything lower than 10k will make the water look yellow.
so 20k blue look, 10-14k white look, 10k down yellow look.

The only coral, IF I put any in, would be Shrooms and Zoas.
