    With the addition of @Dana Riddle to the community we have created a new lighting specific forum. We still have the LED Lighting specific forum and will keep that as is for now. General lighting threads usually have been created in the general equipment forum but now will have it's on forum. We will begin to move lighting threads to this new forum.

    Please post all lighting specific topics accordingly!

    Very good news. I hope he can clear all misconceptions about people thinking they have to buy the led lights that have the highest par reading to get coral growth.

    Hello guys, I'm new here to the forum and would like to ask a few tips for my new 20 gallon tank

    I'd like to add a clip on LED light but I'm not sure which one I should get. I'm trying to stay on budget, so I'm looking for something not very expensive.
    I'm planing to have just 2 clownfish and a clean crew for now. No corals yet.

    I was looking at this light on Amazon: Hipargero Touch Control 30w CREE Nano LED Aquarium Light for Coral Reef Fish Tank Saltwater https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0727V8C5Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_B4IKzbZTDDE16


    I'm not sure if this is a good one, so please let know what lights you would recommend

    This is how he tank looks now:

    Thanks a lot,

    Hugo Garcia

    That light would be fine for fish for sure and it might be ok for some coral rock work looks good

    Hello. Fairly new reefer here. Just got the hydra 52 and would like to have some ideas of how and what intensity I should set them at. I figure sunrise at 1pm sunset 9pm with an3 hour ramp. Whites at 25%? All other colors I am somewhat clueless. Can fellow Aquaillumination guys and gals chime in? Thanks in advance
