    Coralife Light Fixture...will it work? *EDITED*

    I'm building my first terrarium and was given a 55gal tank along w/ this fixture:

    http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_ViewIt...%2B%204%20LED)

    Will I be able to find bulbs for this that'll be suitable?

    Thanks!

    Edit: From what I've found searching the forums here, it looks like the 6700k bulbs would be the ones for the fixture linked above. There are four bulbs in this unit. My new question is if I should use four 96W or four 65W bulbs. Any help/comments much appreciated!

    I'm mad. You're mad.' 'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
    'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'

    I'd try two 65 watt to start and see what happens. Good luck!

    The stock lights won't work, especially the actinics. If you can find bulbs with a lower K rating, then it'll be fine.

    Edit: Are you skitzofrenic?

    I'm assuming 'skitzofrenic' is someones username, and if so, no I am not?
