I spent a lot of money yesterday and netted an Ultra Tri-Lux bulb (along with
some fish food, an issue of TFH, and some Java Moss and Fern).
I installed the bulb in my 4' shop-light hood to replace the last of my GE
aquatic plant bulbs. I replaced the other bulb a month ago with a GE Daylight
that made my tank look green.
WOW what an aesthetic difference. Everything now has a bluish hue to it. My
black angels kind of look navy. My cardinals show brilliantly. Unfortunately,
my rams don't show quite as well under this light. I'll wait a month and use
up some store credit on a Triton (Hopefully, I'll have my free-standing hood
done by then... Wish I had free time...).
I hope my crypts don't melt.
