I knew we had this discussion a while back and I managed to find that thread:
Blacklight/whitelight combination

The concensus there was not to use it, as it is UV.

On another matter, are the fish in your list together in one tank? Because this combo has some serious problems.

And, as I see you just joined, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
