I take no responsibility here. Be very careful.

405nm? Shouldn't it be lower?

Dary's tank!

Anywhere in the blue range works fine. These are a purple color and aren't as dazzling to the eye but does a fine job of nuking about anything you hit it with. Distance, focus, tank clarity all contribute to how effective it is. It takes more power if you use a green laser because of the absorption colors underwater organics are.

The 405nm laser led concentrates a very small dot so it's energy density is higher than some others. In a perfect world you would use a C02 UV laser at about 20 watts with a visible guide laser, but that's out of most hobbyists rang, thank heavens.

I broke down and ordered one of those lasers to. We will see how it goes.

Acrylic can really zap the beams energy. Try it. You might have to go after them with the laser in the water if you got a waterproof one. You have to focus it to a tiny dot if you can. Be careful.

I've been considering that with my 125 planted. If I do, it will be in the next 2 or 3 year.

I wish Dary. I would have to sell off all of my fish and plants first and that would take time. I would need the profits from those sales to upgrade equipment. I am seriously thinking about though.
