I pulled my light bulb out of the canopy and here are the specs:
First of all, it's a 10 gallon tank - 20 inches long.
The bulb is an Aqueon Full Spectrum 15W T8 18" as written on the bulb. It came with the canopy and the actual reflector has a white plastic insert.
All of the most recent plants I put in, Cabomba, Wisteria, and Water Sprite have been growing very fast, the wisteria not quite as fast, and I'm wondering if I happen to have an exceptionally good light/tank combination.
I'm going to try and google up the bulb and give you any results. By the way, the bulb was made in Germany.
Couldn't find anything at Aqueon or anywhere else. Saw a reference to 8000 *K. I hope that's not true as it seems a little out of the proper color temp range. Mine looks fine.
Thanks for reading and if you can tell me what the real color temp is and how strong my lighting is - the actual distance from the bulb to the tank bottom is something like 13" - that includes the substrate.
