    Hi, the 15W T8 tue over my 60L tank has gone in the last few days.
    I was originally running an Arcadia Original Tropical Lamp, but I wondered if there were any recommendations on particular tubes to go for, or where to buy?

    It's a fairly basic tank, with minimal live plants. I had been looking at Lampspec.co.uk, and there 5000k lamp, but I really have no idea whether 5000k is a 'good light' or not?

    Many thanks :)

    EDIT Actually, forget lampspec, once I add shipping, the shipping alone is more than I can get the Arcadia lamp for at my LFS!

    I use Osram T5's as there SOO cheap. If you have a WF Electrics near you, you can pick up the bulbs. I paid 4 quid each for my T5's Im just gonna get some T8's Osram 865's as ther 6500's
