I got a Sun Blaster Nano 48" t5 fixture. I tried the 6400K bulb that came with the fixture and it was way too warm white for me. So I got a 10,000K bulb from an LFS and I found it to warm as well. I had to go online to order a 15,000K t5. It was better, but it was too bright. It took away too much of the shimmer for my taste and even over ran the leds mid tank look (the t5 was set at the very front edge of the tank). So I spent over $100 on fixtures and bulbs I didn't like.

I decided I didn't want to wait until Reef Breeders got the new led strips in anything more than all blue as I didn't know how long that would be. The rest of the story is posted near the end of my build thread. The link to the thread is in my signature below.
