You might have experiences dancing for rain. I don't.The most unscientific verse ever uttered...
Every time I dance, it rains. Therefore my dancing makes it rain.
My experience is that dancing makes it rain...therefore that is a fact, and you cannot argue with it
We are talking about results from hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people for more than 3 decades. We are talking about facts of physics shared in this forum, and from serious hobbyists in the past years around the globe. Some serious coral farmers! The guy who introduced LEDs in this hobby brings lots of facts about the subject too! People that actually have experiences with all types of lighting, including LEDs, but care about their results, and not about saving electricity, for example. People who know better.Incorrect
We are NOT talking about those who bought their LEDs and need to convince themselves they invested in the best lighting just because they spend so much money to get those and that has to be the best no matter what! Or those who never saw nor had any experiences with halides and want to defend their LED fixtures just because. Not talking about those newbies that had been told that if those "YouTube channels" and "the best stores" are using, then that is officially the best. Not to mention those who love to bring some graphics to prove others wrong, but never actually had any experiences with reef tanks at all. Yes, we have that here too!
Please do your search about the subject and find out yourself!
Science should be the way to prove what we see happening in the first place, not isolate PAR as the main lighting subject or definition of good/bad lighting.
Your comparison shows how much you want to know about facts.
I don't think anyone here wants to dance for rains. They just want to have the best reef tank they could and IMO halides + T5s will get them more than half way there!
If we just lay our opinions here and stop trying to prove stuff against each other this thread could be better. My opinion won't change. I just want share the truth, also shared by many others. Are we all wrong? Did you even try?
If you like your LEDs please keep them. I'm sure you must be very happy with your results. I'm fine with that. Enjoy your tank. If one day you change for halides, you can come back here and thank me for saying that. I'm humble enough to be very happy for you. Many did that before and we are all friends.
Post your opinions in this thread and just have fun, because that is what this thread should be actually for!
