Blue or white lights?

Blue or white lights for my tank?

Which do you think looks better? Which one is less stressful for the fish? Can you still grow plants with the dimmer blue lights?

I think blue lights would be cool! But the bulbs used for tank lights will not grow your plants, they need natural sunlight. It does not need to be direct sun for the sake of the fish but natural sunlight will grow the plants. I'm not sure what lighting is less stressful for fish but I have a white florescent light for my tank and it really brightens things up, so if you really want your tank to pop, a personally like the white florescent best i brings out more color in my opinion. :)

Lights with a spectrum of about 8000k or so which is bluer is usually for marine lighting. With freshwater aquatic plants, you would want slightly warmer lights (lower spectrum). The "perfect" spectrum would be at around the 7000k range for plants. To answer the question, white light is better.
