Sun corals do not burn under lighting. I have several sun corals on a frag rack just a few inches under the water and they do not care at all. They don’t have zoo in them to bleach or anything. There is no light acclimating them other then training them to open in the day.And I’m getting nps I don’t wanna burn them
+1.RBG light is not the same as a reef light. You don’t need to spend a lot of money but please get a cheap reef light. It’s only 65-100 dollars or even a good freshwater planted light like what tigerboy runs.
And a better looking tank with better quality.+1.
There’s a huge difference between a flashlight and a light built for a tank. Besides, I know I feel like a broken record with this, but a $150 aio will give you everything you need from reef lighting to adequate filtration.
How many times must we say that floodlights do not provide proper lighting for just about any coral.I’m going to use flood lights, I don’t think softies and macros and sessile inverts would need like extremely acintic lights
Super actinic, certainly no. But they still need the correct spectrum and color intensity(par/pur). To which your "flood lights" will not provide. Softied expecially need the correct light as they get 99% of their nutrition from their zooxanthellae.I’m going to use flood lights, I don’t think softies and macros and sessile inverts would need like extremely acintic lights
Zoanthallae produces a protein that glows under strong blue light. That is a natural biological reaction, not something genetically altered to occur. Corals have simply been bred for color. Nothing wrong with preferring wild type, but you are claiming that because something looks different in different conditions, it does not require something scientifically proven to be required.None of it is glowing though
