Lighting for SPS 9/1/12
I recently sent in an email about a pending nano system
I would like to set up for frags. It was suggested to me that I use a
Ecoxotic PAR38 LED Aquarium Lamp to light the system. I was wondering if
this would still apply for trying an Acropora frag, or perhaps a
Birds Nest coral. I am also wondering if this type of lighting
would be adequate for anemones.
I wont mix SPS and anemones, but I would like to at least have an idea
of whether or not this is a multipurpose light or not really.
<In my opinion, this LED lamp is more suited for highlighting areas in a
tank. It also has a very sharp narrow focus due to the 40 degree
lenses used. This would not be my choice for your needs.
Have you looked at the Orphek PR25? This LED lamp has more LEDs
and the spectrum is tuned for coral and anemone growth. This LED
lamp uses 60 degree honeycomb
reflectors and provides 12" x 12" coverage with the lamp suspended
12" above the water line. Take a look here.
