Rose bubble tip led lighting

Which would a 55g rose bubble tip anemone tank prefer.. Led full spectrum.. Or just plain blue and whites? And does anyone have the no name brand fixtures like taotronics . How do you like them?

Either the blue/white or full spectrum will support a anemone. There are many in the forum that use the taotronics with great success.

But for a specific rbta's tank. Would rose bubble tips prefer full spectrum. Or more intense blue and white... Or even t5's??

The blue and white dimmable taotronics will work just fine for them

It doesn't matter. Either will work fine. the colors are just for aesthetic purposes, they are not necessary for coral or anemone growth.

You get photosynthesis with full-spectrum. As far as I know you corals need plenty of that? If I was you go with full-spectrum

What? Then how am I growing algae under my straight blue and white fixtures? How am I growing colorful corals and anemones?
Again, the colors are just for human enjoyment. Don't believe the hype.

Mr x. The full spectrums would work the same as the blue and whites? Just show me more color? Or will the anemones thrive better under just blue and whites? I'm thinking about trying the full spectrums. Just for the heck of it. But I want a crazy beautiful anemone tank for both me to enjoy. and my anemones to live in. What are your thoughts?
