    I changed my normal tubes for a standard white led on the recommendation from my lfs my tank is 5ft and I only need to use one as two are too bright the colours of my fish realy stand out even the wife as said how good the colours are,I've attached 1 photo when I get out of my slumber I'll take a photo of the light used

    The label is two pictures the others are what I've just taken, this is with one tube on

    I got a 40w equivalent daylight LED bulb for mine and it really brought out the colors. It had a CFL before.
