08/02/2006, 06:45 AM
Hello everyone,

I am thinking of upgrading the bulbs in my jbj 12gal DX to these 36w bulbs they have at nanotuners.com http://nanotuners.nanocustoms.com/nanotuners/index.php?cPath=28&osCsid=b128cd4c6a1387a233d1994bade02664
I am thinking about gettting 1 of the 36w 10000k daylight bulbs and 1 of the 36w PC Realux Actinic blue bulbs. The only coral I have right now is a shroom but I am going to add some zoos to my tank also. Whould this be a good lighting combo?

for mushrooms and zoas...yes, that light should be more than enough.

I would caution you against one actinic and one white. I have read that it give too much of white and too much of actinic in their areas they shine on. From what I have read people who buy one and one end up getting two 50/50's. Not my experience personally, but have read it more than once in RC & NR forums.

Thank you that is why I posted I wanted to know if that combo would be a be a problem. I guess I will be picking up the 36w 50/50 lights.
