I have a 4ft display tank with Pindani, Maingano, Aceii, Saulosi (all bluish in colour) and Electric Yellows, Saulosi Females, small Clown Loaches (orange/yellowish in colour).

My question is - what particular brand / colour spectrum style fluro will enhance the colours of my fish more effectively - eg blue spectrum? general aquatic spectrum? other? :?:

Unfortunately I've only got a single fluro light so I cannot mix and match tubes. My rockwork is black basalt type ( not lava rock purchased from Raycam :wink: ) and my substrate is white sand.

Your lighting advice would be much appreciated.

Regards

Peter
