Just got hold of an Arcadia 48" overtank luminaire. (so sexy)
Its obviously come with the 'plant pro' tubes and I feel its very red.
Jst wondering what the best selection of tubes.. what light spectrum to use etc etc...

Look at James's sticky in the lighting forum about using Cheap HO T5 tubes from Lampspecs. He's done pictures of the different bulbs so you can see what spectrums your eyes like. The bulbs are a lot cheaper than aquatic ones too.

Beat me to it LD!

I'm using Osram Lumilux 880 Skywhite + Osram Lumilux 840.

It looks spot on! :D

I love the look of those skywhites. May swap two of the plant pro for them.
