Zoas Reacting Under Different Radion Light

so i decided to see what happens to this zoa polyp as i changed the color of the light.... the rest of the polyps were pretty much open all night so i decided to focus in one this one.

it was taken over the period of just over an hour

What colors do you find best? I'm still ramping mine up slowly so don't have the spectrum dialed in yet. I'm @ 75% @ 12k for peak daylight. Not sure I'll go higher.

I think red in that degree is mainly for aesthetic purposes - to allow full RGB control.

It's hard to say they were reacting at all

I thought it was a pretty cool experiment. And it was interesting to watch. If you ever experiment with more colors, or do the same with other corals, I'd like to see that, too.

red light causes them to close as if there is no light at all..... and green caused it to open again..... and blue caused them to turn up towards the light
