    Bubbles from new lights?

    I just purchased (2 months ago) a pro light system - 2-150 watt 10k's with 2 96 watt actinics. Things started out ok in the tank - no algae at all to moderate algae growth - expected maybe from the increase in light wattage on my tank. From 260 watts to almost 500 watts on a 90 gal tank. Now...

    10k halogen - not pleased.

    I just bought a coral life light fixture. It has 2 - 96 watt actinic and 2 150 watt halogens - 10k. I'm not real thrilled with the 10k's - too yellow in my opnion. What do most of you that use halogens use for wavelength? 10k, 20k? Can you explain how the other wavelengths look?
