Got that angel, thanks.. So far, there hasn't been any algae problem. Will monitor closely.

As for the actinic case, I still like actinic a lot in tanks as they give us a more natural look and indirectly intensifies the color of the most fishes (depends on the fishes' color). But I am not sure myself as I am just a newbie in lighting. hehe! Just my 2 cents.

Byron so are you telling me that the actinic i have over my tank is bad for my plants? its been in there for a while now in combo with a daylight from walmart and plants are doing better than they were with my previous setup Much better.

im sure you can agree with my thinking here, plants need blue and red. the actnic provides the blue while the daylight is intense in the reds which provides a great lighting balance, i would just like to understand this further cause as i said my plants are doing great and cant imagine why actnic would be bad, just b/c some book says it or some prof say it is bad doesnt necessarily mean that. i am the kinda person that likes to see the facts behind things in order to understand it.
