    The LEDs over my 30c are the ADA aquasky, which has a spectral temp 8000k. In my 90p I use 3 6500k bulbs and one 10000k bulb. The 10,000k bulb is the blue toned one. So you could do one 6500k daylight and one 10000k, which combined are around the 8000k.

    90p is a 90 cm tank, 90x45x45 roughly 48 gallons

    You definitely need to not have the light on for 12 hours, that is a big problem. If you work all day and want to see it in the evening, just have the light come on at noon and run for 8 hours. Once things get better you could increase to 10 hours, but for right now it wouldn't be wise.

    You only need TWO bulbs, 1x6500k and 1x10,000k. If your tank is 95 liters that is plenty of light.

    The ambient light from the windows can cause some stem plants to bend that way, but for the plants you have in your tank it should have no problems.
