Hi FishForums. I needed an answer to this question, and was hoping somebody here could give me a quick answer. I have a 29 gallon freshwater tank with a bunch of assorted Tetras, Silver Dollars, nothing too exciting. These fish have been under an Aqua-Glo light bulb for many many years, and today I went out and bought my annual replacement bulb. When I got home, I noticed that the label on the bulb wasn't my usual Aqua-Glo, rather an Eclipse Daylight bulb. I plugged it in, and I liked the color it produced, so I was planning on keeping it. I was simply wondering whether this change in light intensity and color will affect the fish, and if I should go return the bulb and get my 'old-faithful' type. Thanks for your help in advance!
The only thing it will really change is the coloring in the fish. Some look more colorful or less colorful in different lights. I have a light that really brings out the red coloration in my Cherry Barbs. It does not physically make them change, it is just how the colors are perceived.
