Monday Blues...

Well, more like my tank is too blue for my liking. I have an ATI T5 fixture (6 bulb config). All the suggested bulb arrangements promotes heavy blues and purples.

Anyway I can get a more balanced white look and still have corals (soft corals) grow well? Would prefer to have that purple/ blue hue in the living room.

Nice tank you can add a GE6500 bulb to bring out some more of the true colors.

Right now, it's half coral plus and half blue plus. Thanks for the compliments/input!

What size bulbs are they. If they are 60” I can trade for some of the ones I have if you would like to change the color up a bit.

48" - but not interested in trades right now. I ended up buying some purple plus and actinics to throw in the mix the other day. Thanks for the help!
