Yes . 6500K, 1100 lumens, Ra = 97. This tube is recommanded by OSRAM in Europe for zoology, and particularly tropical beasts and plants. It's better to use it with an electronic ballast like the OSRAM QUICKTRONIC. The tube exists in 5 powers :
- 15 watts - 650 lms - 438 milimeters long
- 18 watts - 1100 lms - 590 milimeters long
- 30 watts - 1600 lms - 895 milimeters long
- 36 watts - 2300 lms - 1200 milimeters long
- 58 watts - 3700 lms - 1500 milimeters long
All versions have the same temperature of color : 6500K (exactly the same as the Sun).
and a RCI of 97 (the Sun = 100)

This tube is one of the most efficient for fresh water tropical aquariums. The light is wonderfull and everything works well.

Calculate a number of lumens (lms) from 30 to 50 per litter. You will get the number of tubes you need. Don't forget to fertilze with CO2.
