I am happy with it. It isn't perfect but overall it is much better than the reef capable led
on its own.
Help me understand lighting requirements for corals. My corals have only been in the tank for 1 month but they are doing fine. Generally SPS
corals require higher lighting. With the setup I have now with the additional 1 watt LEDs would I still consider my lighting system low to moderate lighting? Without having a par meter i cant tell exactly what i have but does the additional light add to the total par rating that is in the tank or would it only add to the par rating in the tank if I added a brighter light? I'm just trying to understand what lights can grow what coral.
