    Saltwater tanks require the most precise lighting based on what you plan to have in your tank. For example, having corals require a specific wavelength of lighting for a certain amount of time to allow for the corals to be able to look their greatest, and to be able to consume the light and use it as energy. In our to create a more natural environment of lighting for your saltwater tanks and the life that you keep inside of it, which one do you use and why?

  • I’ve mostly been using pure LEDs for awhile with my freshwater and coral tanks - but tend to find that the LEDs can allow for deeper and richer color than what a normal bulb that has and type of tint over it could provide.


    I’m just happy that the cost has gone down over time since I remember when any LED light fixture was easily over a few hundred.
