 Hi,  
 
 need  an  advice  on  lighting.  
 I  bought  a  used  SUNSUN  aquarium  from  one  of  the  member  of  this  forum  and  tried  to  setup  a  planted  aquarium.The  lighting  with  the  tank  comprised  of  two  T8  fluorescent  lights.  a  blue  one  &  pink  14000  Kelvin  one.     The  lighting  was  good  and  plants  were  green.  one  fine  day  the  blue  light  stopped  working.  there  was  a  14K  kelvin  pink  light  was  working.  I  got  a  replacement  for  blue  and  my  plants  started  rotting.  Today  I  replaced  the  blue  t8  with  ADA  FL20SSNA.  the  difference  is  very  evident.  I  hope  my  plants  will  grow  good  now.  
 
 the  question:  Can  I  replace  the  pink  14000K  one  with  ADA  FL20SSNA?  The  pink  14000K  is  not  giving  out  much  light.  will  it  b  better  to  replace  it  with  more  lumen  providing  ADA  FL20SSNA?
 
 Thanks  a  ton  for  helping  me  out.   Smile

 Go  ahead  and  replace  it.  Pink  lights  are  not  suitable  for  planted  tanks

 Hi  Sudhi
 Plants  do  gud  in  spectrum  of  3000k  to  8000k.  Above  this  its  not  useful,  u  will  get  brush  algae.
 Ideally  u  can  also  opt  for  6500k
 Thanks
 Nilesh

 Thanks  guys,  
 I  think  the  ADA  lights  are  6500K  but  has  more  lumen.  
 I  will  change  the  pink  light  to  the  ADA  one  as  well.  
 
 Thanks  again,  for  the  guidance.

 Dont  waste  your  money  on  fancy  tubes.  The  difference  in  performance  is  minimal  but  difference  in  price  is  huge.  Buy  ordinary  6500K  Cool  daylight  tunes  from  your  nearby  electrical  shop

 Thumb Up  
 
 Please  update  your  location
 
 Do  a  small  experiment  of  school  to  understand  Lights  and  colours  and  spectrum
 
 Make  a  round  wheel  of  paper  color  the  whole  VIBGYOR  on  it  and  rotate  it,  it  will  become  white  Cheering  
 
 You  should  ask  the  seller  why  he  had  used  blue  and  pink  lights  Chuckle   previously.
 
 well....  firstly  all  the  lights  we  purchase  from  vendors  are  basically  for  Homes.  These  lights  are  all  WHITE!  Chuckle  
 
 The  real  meaning  of  spectrum  means  these  white  lights  emit  certain  rays-  viz  red,  green  blue,  and  others.
 
 The  power  of  these  rays  and  the  combination  of  these  rays  is  called  spectrum.
 
 Those  White   Very Happy  lights  which  have  Blue  rays  in  higher  range  and  red  rays  in  lower  range,  and  green  in  medium  range  are  extremely  good  for  plants.
 
 We  buy  WHITE  lights  which  actually  give  out  more  of  green  rays  and  little  red  and  medium  blue  that  is  where  all  the  trial  and  error  starts-  But  no  problem  its  good  to  go  back  to  basics  Chuckle  
 
 
 Check  the  spectrum  of  white  lights  of  your  branded  stuff  and  tell  us  Chuckle

 No  I  couldn't  explain,  for  that  I  have  to  call  up  albert
 
 In  short  there  is  too  much  of  theory  for  that,  a  new  thread  can  be  opened.  But  this  is  just  for  a  lay  man  to  understand  what  to  get  for  a  good  planted  tank.  Thumb Up   
 
 and  honestly....  its  too  complex.  Very Happy
