    Looking for neutral colour T8 tubes

    Cheers for all the info. So if our brains can filter out all the blue from high noon so the grass still looks perfectly green, then why can't it filter out the pink from my tubes so I can see the greens.:) Don't feel like you have to answer that. ;) I went and bought an Aquawhite tube today. So...

    Looking for neutral colour T8 tubes

    I hadn't spotted the 840 tube was the same as in the cheap tubes thread. They don't look hideous on their own and they look fine mixed with the 880 Skywhite, but they'll make my situation worse, so I don't think I want to go there. ;) So is the stated colour rendition index of a tube just an...

    Looking for neutral colour T8 tubes

    Cheers for that, might give those white 35 a go. There's these tubes, but SuperColey1 seemed to think they'd be pink. 'Cool white' doesn't sound very pink.

    Gosh, all that for little old me! Much appreciated and very interesting reading, cheers. That's the problem, I can't find daylight bulbs in the size I need.

Not flushed artificially pink, red, yellow, orange, blue, or any other colour that they don't exhibit under normal...

    Looking for neutral colour T8 tubes

    Cheers GF, read that several times before. Problem is I can't find any of the neutral coloured tubes suitable for planted tank in the size I'm after (3.5 foot T8). So if anyone knows of any that aren't pink, yellow or red, feel free to recommend them.

    Looking for neutral colour T8 tubes

    Looking for a bit of advice on T8 tubes. Ideally tubes that don't look pink, red or yellow. I was going to buy some uber-cheap standard 3.5 foot tubes from lampspecs, but during a discussion on TFF I was advised against it, I think the reasoning was that they'd be pink or something to do with...
