How does this blue/white light work for corals??
So, I splurged, and bought a Kessil LED light. I love it! Does amazing things to make the corals and tank really pop! I can either dial all blue light, all white light or a combo.
Can anyone tell me which if any is better for coral growth?? Obviously, I wouldn't do all blue except maybe at night, but I'm wondering during the day if all "white" is best?
The light came with no information about this. I have candy cane/trumpet corals, button corals, frog spawn, and others that are all considered pretty easy/hardy.
Blue light penetrates water better and its better for Coral growth. Try to dial up between 15-20k. I use 22k lamps in my system.
Aquarium Lighting; Reef, Planted Light Information. PAR, Bulb, Watt, Kelvin, Nanometers, MH, LED.
Another question. Since this light claims to not cause algae, can I increase my hours the light is on? I have it at 8 hours, because of all the algae I had. With the lights off for basically 5 days, I have no algae now :) I had just green algae.
Reef lighting is usually around 10-12 hours. You can adjust as needed.
