adding actinics to an exsisting nano cube hood
Picked up a used nano cube to give my clowns and nem a home of their own. Thanks to live sand from Ypsi Fish drs, and MB7 and some live rock from my other tank I had a super short cycle and the clowns are already in their new home the nems have settled into their new spots everything is cool. Until I turn the halides off the sudden transition from full on 150 w halide to 4 leds shocked the clowns they freaked the "F" out and I felt horrible once seeing them react like that. So my question is what are my options for adding atinics to the exsisting hood to make the transition easier. The 14k hamilton bulb produces nice bulb but I love the pre and post blue glow you get from atinics. I've looked online a bit and have seen people replace all the lights with leds but I just want to add the atinics to supplement, not fully replace everything with leds. Let me know what you guys have done or seen, could I add a small t-5 bulb into the hood?
