Nice video and great tank! I just found the specs for my light....can anyone help me make sense of it and what it means? What is the difference between the white and blue. Will the blue still give light needed for the tank? Any help greatly appreciated. My overall goal is to have a bubble tip anemone eventually.

48” – 60”

• 54 LEDs (1 watt)

• 46 - 10,000K (white)

• 8 – 460 nm (blue)

The marine land is a middle of the road type lite I have one on my reef. Looking back I wish I went better but at that time it was the best I could do. ( my other light fried out when I was laid off) but all my corals are growing. Not good for any sps but my hammers have doubled in size and my nem is huge compared to what he was before this light

Wow that is amazing. I went with the marineland because I wasn't wanting a chiller plus I got it on ebay for 150 bucks which was a steal considering it runs 480 at my LFS! How long did you wait to add your nem and what type is it?
