I'm getting just as good results with the LED
fixtures as I was with the 8 lamp T5 fixtures, when SPS
is concerned. LPS
is another story. It seems that some LPS
does well under the LED
units, but others must be almost totally shielded from the light. I'm finding a similar reaction from anemones. Some love the new light, while others are not enjoying it.
As for the ORA coral question- Most of them are pretty nice and have been in captivity for quite some time, and as a result are easier to keep than wild specimens.
