    I'm planning on changing the fluorescent light I'm using since the alight amount of light coming from our window seems to not enough for the plants in my tank.
    I went to the hardware and ask for daylight fluorescent and they gave my "cool daylight" (18w / 2600k / 1030lumens)
    I wonder if it will it sustain the growth of my plants in 30g tank?
    Thanks..

    and yes, it says "Cool Daylight".

    "Philips T8 18 Watt Fluorescent Cool Daylight 2ft Light"

    That makes more sense hahaha.
    Lot of members use 6500K for a planted tank. I myself use 4000K tubes (more yellow : cool white)
