Can someone steer me in the right direction because apparently the new light fixture I got with my 55 is four saltwater 6 bulb to ho- 4 12000k and 2 Arctic blue. So what should I do its a nice fixture and it was a steal on craigslist. Should I just run 1-3 bulbs or sell it and if so what should I get as a replacement. Like I said I paid $60 for a 55 and this light so I'm sure I can flip it for a decent amount.

I want to have mostly low light to medium light plants and maybe run a little diy co2 system just to add some.

Would really appreciate some help before I add plants and the lights be too powerful.

You should be able to just swap out the bulbs for ones with a different light spectrum. You can get some of the same wattage, but if you want low to medium light, you can get lower wattage bulbs. Since there are 6 bulbs, you could do all 6500K, or, say, 4 at 6500K and 2 at 10,000K.

In the plant section they said this much light would be way to much. I'll probably just sell ir
