Too bright?

I just got a new tank hood and bulbs today and I think the bulbs put off too much light for the pair. What do you think? I have not added IAL yet but I'm going to try and make the water tea colored as usual. Just give me you opinion as I do have a back up light :)

MY EEEYES!!!

lol, it seems bright to me... you may want to tone it down, but since you'll be tea-ing down the water, it may be okay. (I imagine the tea would act like fish sunglasses.)

That's what I'm thinking. I'm using 3-4 leaves so that should be enough. I did have two bulbs in the hood but that was WAY too bright.

Ha, I imagine so.
Good luck on the spawning, though!

Thanks! The lovebirds come in from Thailand tomorrow so I'll pick them up from my transhipper. I'm just cycling the tank now but they'll be conditioned in seperate 3 gallon heated tanks for two weeks.
