Low for what? It has absolutely nothing to do with anything.

So what ur saying is light intensity has nothing to do with is. So I can put a 40 watt cfl above my tank and my coral will grow just fine. Good to know I can get buy way cheaper on my lighting costs. Thanks for the advice.

Kelvin, or color temperature, has nothing to do with intensity.

Then what is Kelvin if not intensity. Color is wavelength. You proved that for me as you showed me a link to green 30000k headlights then a YouTube video of blue 30000k headlights the only 2 things they had in common is they were the same temperature and high intensity.

Kelvin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Color temperature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intensity is measured by PAR, or even PUR. Watts was a decent measurement, but now things are different, since technology has advanced.
Kelvin is basically visual color. deeper water corals are used to higher kelvin (20k or so) but they will do well if acclimated to lower K lamps also.

www.sizes.com/units/color_temperature.htm and after reading this sorry skylight is 20000 and after refraction and the depth why would deep water corals be used to highest temperature. I believe that Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. So who says you didn't edit it. I have ppl thanking me for putting you in your place. So, maybe you are a know it all and ppl hate know it all ppl. I never said anything as factual I said in my opinion take or leave it for what it is. That is the point for this place. Share ideas not say I'm right your wrong neener neener neener. You are acting like a child that is trying to get his way. Every time I figure you done whining. I don't come back and retort. Yet, a day later here you are again. Just shut it no one cares about what you think or is any of this related to this guys specific problem. So it is way off topic and I thought that was a big no no I thought oh wait your 5. NO and a finger shake

This thread is now closed. Perhaps we can all learn something from this.
