Lighting for SPS 9/1/12
Dear WWM,
<Hello Bryce>
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.
