Hi

I have a juwel trigon 350 and the standard bulbs that come with the tank

2x Natural
2x Day

The tank hosts approx 50 african cichlids and no plants.

I am having a hard time in working out what bulbs to put in. I want something that shows off the colours of the fish.

Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks

James

Depends what type of fish you've got, but I'll assume we're talking Malawians... Something either 50/50 or with a lot of actinic in it will bring out the blues in them and make them look gorgeous. I'd go with 1 50/50, 1 20000k, 2 10000k. Or maybe switch the 20000k with a day (~6700k) if it seems too blue for you.
