  1. What spectrum UV LED for SPS

    hmm, what leds are SunBrite UV tubes using? Will they not help at all? I don't think I'd want to go Halide/LED combo, if anything Led/T5 seems to make more sense since halides and leds are point source lighting.
  2. What spectrum UV LED for SPS

    Thanks again for the response, what ratio of UV lights should I add for SPS? I'm currently thinking somewhere along the line of 55% Blue, 35% White, 5% UV, 2.5% Red/pink 2.5% Green, but if I need more UV that's ok to, Should Ibe shooting for at least 5-10% UV or more?
  3. What spectrum UV LED for SPS

    Thanks for the responses, sent an email off to the guy will let you know when I find out. What are the brands to avoid, or if it's easier what are the brands I want outside of cree?
  4. I'm looking to purchase an LED unit, and my options for colours are white lights from 4500K to 20000K Blues from 440-470nm. red620nm-660nm; orange610-615nm; yellow:585-595nm; green500-530nm; UV380-440nm; IR730-850nm I'd like to add UV's for my sps (which I believe is supposed to help from what I've been reading), but don't know what spectrum is preferred? Outside of tht I wanted to mix in a few pinks-reds, with wide optics, and maybe a few greens to try to get a little more pop. The majority of the colour outside I'm thinking will be a 60:40 blue/white mixture. Should I be looking at the 470nm for blues or more along the lines of the 453nms Thanks any help would be appreciated. -B

    still looking? I may been selling mine shortly, thinking of going another route.
  6. T5HO Information

    Wondering if now that they UVL 20" 30w lights are out anybody can attest to how they are working and how they look? I've got a Solana 34g. with a 150w sunpod, but I'm thinking of switching to T5s. Most likely the Nova extreme pro. The key thing for me is being able to grow sps I know with a 24" bulb I'll be able to pick from a wider range of bulbs, but my tank is 20" . So with that said my. 1) How are the UVLs working now that they've been out for a little bit? 2) What are the ballast upgrades needed to get the full 30w? 3) How do they UVLs look? Can you replicate or get close to a ATI/KZ combo? 4) (the most important). Anybody successfully growing sps under a 20" system? or should I just be looking for a 20" t5 hybred.

  11. 175W Color Temp opinion needed!

    I've had 175w 6.5k Hamiltons, 10k CoralVues and 10k Hamiltons so far I like the 10k the best, although next i'm going to get the 14k's or the 20k's I'm also running a little under 200w of PC actinics.
