As usual, the posts have been fascinating and chock full of information.
I am now going to rely on your collective wisdom for this question.
I recently started my tank and I have changed my fluorescent tube to that
of a 48 inch plant/aquarium tube from GE. Light intensity seems more
compared to the perfect a lamp tube that was previously in place. However,
I don't like the color! It makes everything look yellow or washed out.
I read Karen Randall's column in the latest aquarium magazine on lights.
Karen recommended Tri phosp types with an M shaped spectral distribution.
How do I know what tubes have this distribution. None of the packaging
ever shows this. Plus which tubes produce intense green colors and not
the yellowing that I noticed?
I had not noticed this coloring with the old fluorescent tubes I had.
Thanks in advance.
The Mojave Desert getting cooler and the sunsets more spectacular.
