Hi George

Were you planning on doing a limited actinic lighting period? If not, your fish health will go down with them not having any adequate sleeping periods.

I've been running actinic over the last week as I wait for my new bulbs to come in, and I have noticed increased algae growth. I can tell my plants are not doing great under this light but its just a temporary fix for me.

My understanding is the actinic lights are not in the range for chlorophyl to utilize.
