I know, horrible of me to have fakeys!!! LOL!!!
Since the 10g could potentially have meds put into it if someone gets sick... I just wanted some color and movement without having to worry about corals being in there. Plus I got them both for a BUCK brand new still in pkg from the guy I got the $3.50/lb live rock from! They are $8 a piece @ Walmart!
I forgot to add... I finally replaced the bulb that was in the fixture when I got the tank... (the 65g) it was a ZooMed 5500K and WAY old... Replaced it with a 50/50 daylight/actinic bulb. It looks a lot more purpley! I can't wait to get my new fixture. Gosh! That is the biggest thing holding me up on corals!
BTW-I am planning on keeping the one-strip 36" T8 fixture that is there, and my new one will be a 4-bulb 36" T5, w/moonlight LEDs and fans. That should be plenty enough light for corals and an anemone, right?? Mixing the T5 fixture bulbs, half actinic, half daylight?
