Yet Another Lighting Question

Recommended Posts

Sorry but I seem to be obsessive about lighting these days. Has anyone tried red lighting on their aquarium? From some of my reading, red is used in hydroponic farms to increase plant growth. Coral should benefit from some red light, yes? Or would that cause horrendous algae blooms?

I think the red spectrum would be more beneficial for algae-types. Then again, many bulbs have a second peak near that spectrum (or I could be making that up).

Ric,

Are you asking about T-5 or red LED moonlights?

Dave-

The red led moonlight but I have seen LED grow lights on sale that include red lighting as well as white and blue.
