I can't remember, is 6700 and 12000 the wattage?
pink is the new and now its all pink I just took that picture to show comparison of different light the blue spectrum is for salt water tank but my new light fixture came with those bulbs and they were wrong for my tank

6700k is the light spectum not the wattage

This is from a month ago, but I just caught "beguiles", that's hilarious if it's a play on Big Al's. I missed it the first time, I was too busy being amazing at 3 rainbows for $16.

Does that say Big Al's wanted $78 for a clown loach?

I have no idea what spectrum mine are. Is it printed somewhere on the bulb?

We started fishkeeping because we thought it would be easy and cheap. Yeah right.

Are the pink ones the ones you had mentioned were $17 at Big Al's?

When I did a water change on my Rainbow tank the other day I noticed a ton of gross algae on the glass under the light bulbs. Is this normal? Not like that on any of my other tanks. And there's no algae problem in the tank, just on the glass under the lights. It is nasty looking. I assume I should clean it off. Hard to remove the hoods because they're taped to the back of the tank (all the tabs were removed when I bought it used so I cut plastic strips and taped them on)

Did the phone autofill "beguiles" too? Funny because Beguiles sounds a lot like Big Al's. I'm going to say Beguiles instead from now on, and see if anyone notices. Like saying Meow instead of Now.

Ok.....Kribensis... who keeps 'em?

They had these in at Big Al's awhile ago and they are good looking fish.

Do they eat plants as badly as Tiger barbs? I just did a quick read on them, and I don't see why they wouldn't be compatible with Balas.

If they are better for plants than tiger barbs, I would be totally interested in getting them instead of the barbs.

I've had mine for a month or so. They're great fish, they don't eat plants and generally don't brother other unless it's breeding time. Mine have bred in my aquarium, but sadly I lost the fry because I was unprepared. Here's their profile Kribensis.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

Yeah, I've read that about the breeding. How often does that occur? I'm hoping the tank is big enough that each fish has enough territory that it's not a big deal.

How many Kribs can I keep together, and what should the female:male ratio be?

So my tank came with 4 Marineland bulbs, which are marked F30T8 Natural Daylight.

I can't find the specs for the color temp (Kelvin?) anywhere. The Marineland site doesn't list them. I tried various google searches. Natural Daylight bulbs seem to vary from 5,000K to 6,500K.

I can't find what these specific bulbs are rated anywhere. Google doesn't usually let me down like this. I am perplexed why this info isn't included on the Marineland site.

perhaps contact marineland themselves...
most sites now have pages where you can send questions.
usually good on answering questions..
Of course, it makes you wonder whose 'daylight' they are refering to.
