Default my Ikola/RR 92 bowfront

Here's a few phone pics of my troph group. These RR are google worthy I need to get a real camera. I got these Ikola from Greg at LAA and the RR from rrraptor who originally got them from Greg at LAA.

I'll look when I get home. I am using two different type of lights right now. One is LEDs with different color settings. The big light fixture uses bulbs one white one actinic. I'll get the brand names when I get home.

I have a 36" 4 bulb aquatic life setup and an LED setup. The aquatic life setup has white, blue, and dim blue LED moonlight options. For the white bulbs its 2 Coralife 6700 120V 39W T5 HO, for the Blue its 1 Coralife Colormax 120V 39W T5 HO, and 1 AquaticLife T5 HO 420/460 39W. (I'm no bulb specialist I just read what's on the bulb.) It also has the dim moonlight LED option.


My 2nd light setup is strictly LEDs. It's a 36" Current SATELLITE Freshwater LED. It has many options for different color display I had it on the cream colored button but the light purple button looks more natural.

They look nice without the LEDs, but the LEDs take it next level. Trophs stay at the front of the glass a lot and that's wear I keep the LEDs. It helps with coverage.
