    So I have a 40 breeder mostly zoas and softies. I have been running 2 x 150 watt 14k phoenix bulbs for about 8 months now and they are ready to be replaced. I am looking to get better color out of my zoas, I feel like they get a little washed out because of the intensity of the lighting. I run the halides 6 hours a day. I am thinking Ushio 20k or radium 20k. Just wanted thoughts on what bulb will give me better color. Thanks all

    for a 40g breeder I'd probably do nano-sized halides (75w maybe)... or the truth is T5s would probably give you the best color since you can mix and match bulbs.

    Personally I really like the Ushio 20k+.
