My hood holds (1) 4' fluorescent bulb.

I am setting up a species tank with saulosi. What would be the best bulb to buy?

The tank is 4'x1'x1'

Thanks :)

I just went to our local Menards, (same as a home depot or Lowes) and got one their 4' 6500k daylight spectrum bulbs. Seemed to a very good job for only like $8.

Need? nooo.. fish don't NEED much light, or any particular spectrum really.

It's up to you.

I prefer 6.5-8k + 10k + actinic, but that's me.
