Thank you Plattietudes :o) The color spectrum of 6,700K has a very bright and natural-looking daylight hue to it, so even if it's a low-ligh/low-tech tank, it appears very bright to the eye. I love the 6,700K lightbulbs. Not only do they look great, but they are also very good for plant growth. fish avatar
Lovely! A true inspiration. Makes me want to do a low tech planted tank, although just the lighting makes me feel like your tank is high tech. Congratulations! fish avatar
