Here is why I need someone that Is very informed about Halides and kelvin rating.
I did some research and from what I read it sounds if 6,500K - 10,000K rated lights are the best for coral growth...having said that I also read that with my 150watt halides I have just switched out from my 14K to a 20k bulb. My question is to anyone that has an understanding of this, please help me understand the reason for this. I would like to understand what the PAR is and how it is relative to Energy and wavelengths.
-On my 14K full spectrum HQI metal Halide bulb it talks about peaks in the 460nm range with additional smaller peaks in the 550,590 and 690. I would like to know what this means.
Please someone inform me on this.
Here is where and what I read.
