Just read that issue 4 or 5 articles all on led went very deep on the scientific level and broke everything down. Worth the tough read but really does bring insight into lighting a reef tank.

i just googled that magazine and it says nothing about LED articles in the current issue, except the cover. i guess it must be purchased in order to see the ones you are speaking of.
can you link anything here?

I am surprised at all the surprise over UV, MH have UV, why not add it to other types of lighting for corals?

zooxanthellae protect corals from uv lights, adding uv into the mix will produce more zooxanthelae, causing competition between the zooxanthellae and the coral to compete for nutrition, which could cause the coral to become undernourished. The increase in zooxanthellae population also causes the corals to become darker with a deep brown tint that obscures the natural pigment of the coral.

at least that's what my reading has lead me to believe, we already have a an overabundance of algae nutrients in our tank which can also induce an over-density of the zooxanthellae populations, adding uv into the mix will just add to a problem.
