Plus they looked pretty awesome under the blue. Have you tried this with any of your other corals?

funny that Zooxanthellae algae growth is stimulated by a wavelength from 400 to 700 nanometers which are the green and reds in the spectrum. zooxanthellae is a plant organism that lives in the tissues of corals. maybe the red closes the coral but the green and blue open and extent the polyps which allows the lights radiation to stimulate the growth of the zooxanthellae which in turn feeds the the coral and allows it to grow

and remember aquatic life is near blind to the red part of the spectrum, as it is one of the firsty parts of the light wave to get filtered out. so with red light its amost like its dark out so why would a coral need to be open soaking up the rays of light, logically tehre really isn't

I think the hype with the radions is that they are programmable, work along side MP10/40's to create "storms" etc.

The light "looks" good from what I've seen on this forum.

I think more people like the "wow" high tech factor than actually what it is capable of.

Just my opinion though.
