    Aw...

    I had these guys continue spawning right next to my hand as I was pruning their tanks plants and replanting. they just watched what I was doing but went right on with their business. LOL

    I use 6500K cos that's what comes with my T5 fixtures. They do the job and the color is pretty good, a tad blue in photos sometimes but doesn't look that way in person. I never much liked the "sunlight" 5000K GE Chroma 50 tubes they always seemed too yellow to my eyes. I had some 10000K ones in my original Power Compact reef tube setup which were crisp white but have never found those exact bulbs again. All the local 10K tubes at pet shops around here are 10K ACTINIC (blue reef lighting).

    If you are taking about the plastic worm feeders, they are aquarium live worm feeders. They have a suction cup on one side.

    I use bulbs ranging from 4K to 10K, I try to get 6.5K but you don't always have a good selection in the size/price I want and am willing to pay.

    Swords....coral life sells a 10000K daylight bulb and it really does look a lot whiter. It has been a disappointing season for me...plants-wise...lets wait and see if the new bulbs help.

    Did you build that terrarium yourself RSS? Or where did you find it? Very clean displays. Nice work.

    We picked up that tank in Japan about 10 years ago when we were there. The only part I made was the wooden hood and of course added the plants.

    This is more of a dish garden inside a glass box than a terrarium.
