Lighting question...6500k CFL vs 9325k flourescent
I got a strip light for my boys' 2.5 gal tanks, who are lined up next to each other. They didn't have any 24 inch daylight fluorescent strip lights at lowes, but I saw this other one with like 9325k , 18 watts. Would that work for plants? It said it is for aquariums, not plants specifically, just aquariums. It was only $5 so I'm wondering if that one would work? I'm now considering getting the same strip light for my sorority, because it will look nicer than what I have. But I want to get the right bulbs. My sorority is 20 gallons and heavily planted. So I want the right lights for sure.
