ultraviolet light is extremely bad for corals, per every website on the net.

Good link. I was just about to ask further about those lights too. they seem awesome. but it does seem that uv light would be bad for coral.

i don't see how the UV light is anythign but bad. the UV light is bad for humans and corals have a fleshy exterior too, SPS may be a hard coral but they still have a flesh and UV rays are the highest form of radiation so it will burn almost anything.

the only way i can see UV light doing anything for a coral is by tanning them
