I recently purchased the Custom Sea Life PC
, moonlight system. It's real nice, but it came with an "Ultra Actinic" and a 10k daylight. To be honest Im not real fond of the way the tank looks aesthetically. All the corals are doing great, but the light just doesn't make anything glow.?
Is there a difference between Ultra Actinic and Actinic 420? I used to have some cheap strip lights, with Zoo Med, Coral Sun Actinic 420 bulbs, and they seemed to make the corals absolutely glow, especially the greens! These new lights, the Ultra Actinics, seem to be real boring and make everything look brown
Even my metallic green mushrooms look ugly brown, even when just the Ultra actinic is on.
It seems like the 420's are more purple in color when they're on too. Is that accurate?
SO if the 420's are different, would it be ok for the tank inhabitants if I replaced the ultra actinic for a 420? Also can you upgrade PC
lights from 10k to 20k without any acclimation?
Thanks for any suggestions!!
