Newbie Light Question Regarding Nano Reef


Recommended Posts

i have a pretty newbie question to ask, but i must anyway. i am planning on building a fluval edge nano reef and the question is:


Does it matter where ( LEDS, Coralife 50/50 Bulbs ) are placed on a aquarium?

what i mean is, does the lighting have to sit on top of the opening? ( directly on top of the water )? or can it be on top of the glass? ( surrounding area of the opening? ) there it is.


thanks in advance! lol

I'm a SW newbie too, but I believe in general, the close the light is to the water, the brighter the illumination. If you put it right over the open water, make sure your lighrs are water-resistant.



good luck
