So I tried out the zoo med coral sun t8 24" bulb with the marineland reef capable led
. It definitely didn't do much to bring out the blues in the tank. It was REALLY subtle. So I returned the bulb and want to try two other options. Essentially these would supplement the lighting that I already have.
There is a guy who is willing to sell me a dual t5ho fixture and a 12" Innovative Marine SkkyeLight SingleStrip LED
Light actinic light for pretty cheap. Because the marineland led
puts out so much light I want some more blues still. I would not use both of those fixtures but could buy them both and choose to use one or the other.
I have a 37 gallon tank which measures in at 30x12x22. I am concerned that the 12" singlestrip will be too narrow yet recognize it is a pretty wide angle led
If I used the t5 fixture I would try different combinations to see what coloration I could have in the tank.
What would you recommend for getting more blues in the tank? And would either of these options serve to get better growth for corals that demand more light?
