View Full Version : Lighting Help Please!

Hey everyone. I've got a zoa dominated 46 bow tank, and I just upgraded my lighting from 2 65W PC's to an Aqualight Pro (150W halide, 2 65W PC's). I don't really like the color that I get from the Coralife 10K, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on a better halide lamp. I was thinking about getting a 14K lamp, but I'm not sure which brand I would get. I know DE makes a 150W 14K lamp, but I'm not sure about the quality of their lights. Can anyone help me out? Also, if anyone had any pics of zoas under 10K, and the same zoas under 14K or 20K, that would help out a bunch. Thanks.
14k will give you more of the color you are looking for. 20k will make about everything glow.

can you change your 2x65 watts to be just actinics? that could suppliment the blue you are lacking and be cheaper than buying a new halide bulb.
