    I think you will find the 5000k GE bulb will work just as well as the aquarium and plant bulbs for a lot less money. I use a philips ultralume but the GE chroma series is about the same. Careful switching over though as they will vary in lumen output. I would recommend just switching one bulb at a time as the others need replacing.

    thanks for the tip tony, as the pice goes the plant and aquarium bulbs are only 50 cents more then the 5000k bulbs.
