That is what i have in my 30G (65Watt) tank and I like it. Plants are growing great with a little DIY co2. I did have an algea problem at first, not sure it is was to much light or the mineralized soil I am using. But the tank it clean now. 10 hours of light

Thanks for the reply. I like the color of my 10k lights, but know the plants would like some 6700k better. These may be an answer to what I am looking for. I just can't find them in anything but 33" and I need 22". I'll have to keep looking. Thanks again for your input.

Well they make a 22" version because that is what I have.

However, mine is a square style connector and not the flat style

THANK YOU!! I checked and found the 22" 6700/10,000 bulb, and for only $20. Unfortunately they are on back-order, but when they come in I will be getting some asap. How do you like the way it lights your tank. Good colors?
