| | best t8 tubes for plants?
I am wondering what everyone's opinion is on the best light tubes for plants. I want bulbs that will give plants the edge on algae. Is there a certain color temp. or model of bulb that is better?
I know from my own experience that actinics are great for growing green algae.
I can pick up some Phillips Aquarelle bulbs for a good price. What is your opinion on these? Should I get 6500 or 10,000k? What about a standard GE 6500k?
I have a low light setup with Jave Fern and Anubias.
