40 Gallon Lighting
 
What kind of light should I use for a 40 gallon breeder low light natural tank. I was thinking of a single bulb T8 fixture with a zoo med 30 watt 6500K T8 bulb. Would that be enough?

36" T8s are usually 25 watts (Hagen glo series may be 30 watts), but even so it should be plenty of light unless you plan on some ot the higher light stem plants

Agree. ZooMed's Ultra Sun is a good tube, 6700K. They also have a warmer white, Tropic Sun, which is equally good although I prefer less "warm" in the colour but that is just preference.
