Has anyone tried the ReefBreeders Pico light models? I'm interested in the full spectrum, mostly. Secondly, the "saltwater" model. The saltwater model with one violet and four blue LEDs is probably too blue spectrum for my tastes. But I'm not sure about the full spectrum light having enough blue spectrum for corals. I'm looking for a quality, but affordable, small light for a pico. I'm hoping to grow Leptastrea only, since real estate is limited in a pico and I like encrusting corals. Maybe plus an easy softy but I'd like to make this a tiny species tank. What information is available for Leptastrea puts it as happiest in low-med lighting. This LED might fit the bill? I have found little in terms of reviews from people who have actually used these lights to grow things. For reference, my tank is tiny: it's ~1.6 gallons (closer to 1.3-1.4 with sand and rock I think), 9x6x6" cube. So I shouldn't need a big light to be sufficient for the water volume.
Hi guys, I recently did a 30 3w LED conversion for my boyu t550 (replacement bulbs are hard to find). I managed to fit the LEDS + heatsink in the empty space of the old bulbs and keep most of the wiring including the on/off switch and fans. What would be the best ratio to run them at to support corals? Currently the 18 whites are on 40% and 10 blues plus 2 full spectrum are at 60%. My concern is going to bright and just overwhelming my corals. Do I need to make it brighter or dimmer?
hello fellow nano keepers! I'm very new to saltwater tanks and i need help with lighting. I have a JBJ 24 gallon tank with no stock hood light. I bought this ebay led light " daytime" for it. Will this be sufficient enough? I'm housing 2 clowns, 3 small kenya corals, 1 2" xenia, 3 snails and 6 hermit crabs. Will this be ok for the corals? if not what is the best and cheapest led light for my tank? do i need full spectrum or white and blue color only? sorry for all the question guys. I'm a seasoned freshwater fish keeper but so green to saltwater. Any suggestions? thanks much! Chris
