Default Petrochromis sp. Red Bulu Lighting

A question to any and all Petro sp. Red Bulu keepers.

What configuration of lighting do you have for your tanks. I am thinking of a combination of 10k white and colormax.

I am getting my colony of 25 f1 in the 4" range for a 150g tank soon and new lights as well. I know there will not be much colour in them now, but just planning for the future.

Any input would be appreciated.

Am I pumped!!

I use the daylight bulbs as well Chester. My fish look awesome under it. On bigger tanks out two fluorescent shop lights. It's brighter that way.
