a bump in the road here

My lights burnt out. Like the whole fixture, not just the bulb. :(
My brother in law is a master electrician, so he built me a temp set up with what he had laying around.
It is a t8 bulb, 7500k.
That seems super super high! Will my plants be okay with this for a few weeks until i get paid?

You should be fine most people recommend a kelvin rating of 5000k to 10000k for wanted aquariums.

just suspend the light fixture a few inches off the top of the tank if needed
