I just bought a light system with 4 T5 HOs. It has 2 actinic bulbs and 2 10000k daylight bulbs. the lights are wired in pairs. so I can turn on two at a time. So here are my questions
what is the purpose of the actinic light?? what does it do differently that the daylights?
should they be ran at the same time?
Most that have them run them one hour before white light and an hour after white light out, then moonlighting.
Is this what you purchased? I am considering this for my 40 breeder. Interesting suggestion on the 14k lights though, ReefingMadness. I'll look into those bulbs myself.
no that is not the same. it is similar though. I have only had mine for a few days so it is to early to tell.
