Had my aquatic life fixture running for a few months with two Kessils and a combination of 2 blue + and 2 actinic bulbs.. I’m not liking the colors of this combo at all and I’m wondering what’s everyone’s preferred T5 combo?

I personally would run a coral+ Blue+ combo. Since you have the kessils you will have plenty of the blue if you wish to just look at the tank under blues. You should get great growth with that combo also

Thanks for the advice. I was considering the coral +

I’ve been running 2 B+ and 2C+ for a couple years , I like the look. But I just got new bulbs and went with B+ and an actinic on one channel and a Gmann tropic 6500k with their Coral bulb. Big difference , I actually like the white bulb in the mix a lot. I do think a lot depends on the LED schedule you use as well, I’m using Hydras so probably not the same look you would have.
