Can Someone Review This Light?


Recommended Posts

I have never had corals before. I picked out this light from amazon because it had decent reviews and the price was very nice. Being that I am new to corals I really do not know how to gage if this light is doing any good for my corals, besides them not bleaching, always open and whatnot. 


I don’t really know what to expect in terms of growth. I have an elegance coral, purple monti cap, zoa rock, and Kenya tree. All are opening during the day and look happy. The Zoa rock has been in my tank for about 2 months now, I don’t know when I’m suppose to see polyp growths and births. Is that something a light produces or water chemistry? 


I habe noticed my elegance coral coral has grown some more white rings around its skeletal base. There was an opening that I noticed that recently closed from what I am guess due to propagation. 


Any kind of review and advice about this light would be greatly obliged. Thanks!

it seems decent and if you your elegance is growing i wouldnt venture to change anything. some varieties of zoas are very slow growers....ive had some utter chaos zoas take a month or two for just one polyp and the bam bams i have right now ive had for 3 weeks and i see 3 new budding heads. if you want, i would try feeding your zoas. if they are all opening up then they are doing fine, feeding may accelerate the growth. i use reef chili from brs and ive been noticing some good results. i have heard reef roids is good as well

I have that light. I actually just replaced it yesterday with a Nanobox but it seemed to work fine for me.  I didn't see a lot of growth with it but everything seemed to at least be happy under it. One of the channels is the red led and I cranked that one way down (maybe off). I think it was encouraging algae growth. Other than that it seemed like a workable light for the price. I'm going to hang onto it and may put it on a 5 gallon that I have sitting around dry.
