    hey hey hey ... i just want to know if my simple understanding below is correct or incorrect. Blue: is just for human to see the colourful contrasting colours of corals but it doesn't grow corals as much as the white does. Aesthetic in a word. White: is to grow corals. Incorrect statement?

    Hi again! I have a bubble tip anemone. I have had it for close to 3 weeks now. for the 1st 2 1/2 weeks it stayed on the sand. It's now climbing to the top of the rocks. I have the Coralife PC lights. Does this mean the anemone needs stronger lighting? I have been looking to buy new...

    I just purchased a group of red mushrooms yesterday and when i put it into the tank and all the mushrooms were small and shriveled looking. So I expected it to look better in the morning after the light was on for a while, so I went to bed. But the light has been on for about 4-5 hours now and...

    Okay as this may be a stupid question, humor me anyways... I have a compact flourescent Coralife on my 75 gal. I am trying to add corals slowly, but I fear it is not enough light. Now I can't afford to buy a t5 setup or halide, and another compact for $200 is not practical for me right now...

    I currently have (2) 175w MH, and (3) 96w actinics running on my 75gallon. I have two 400w MH setups that I'm not using and was wondering if it would be beneficial to add one to my tank. I was thinking I could mount it directly in the center, which would be above the rest of the lights. Besides...

It was under 400 MH 14K at the store and is under the same exact light here at home - I bought the light & bulb from the same LFS about 2 months ago. When I started this tank I wanted softies only but have ended...
