    Hello, Trying to add a moonlight to my tank, currently a 75 gallon with WavePoint HOT5 running for daylight. I've never looked into moonlighting as my old 29 gallon tank's LED lighting system had a build in moon phase. I feel the life in the tank would benefit from this moonlight, however, I'm...

    Question- I have a blue moonlight that stays on in my tank at night. The fish seem to gravitate towards it, going to the top center of the tank, under the light. Is this just some natural instinct or is there an oxygen issue? Thanks!

    Trying to sell my 72" Current Orbit 3 x 150 watt Metal Halide 4 x 96 watt power compact fixture. All halide work great, but one of the power compacts does not. One of the fans also doesn't work and one can get a little loud. All the moonlights work but the plug in can be tricky and get pushed in...

    As the title states, I am looking for some night lighting and wondering what you all use. I was looking at these, but don't know if 400 lumens would be too much. I do like how there is two with this one to split it up. Ideally I would like one that has blue and red, but do NOT want the RGB...

    Well, in cleaning one of my filters the other day I made the excellent mistake of accidentally spilling some water on my blue LEDs, my tank is small 22 Liters...about 6 gallons so it isn't a mighty loss of that a large array would be...but I am curious, here in Taiwan getting LEDs made isn't all...

    I have a couple relatively general questions about lighting: ~Are the LED's used in LED lighting fixtures just a normal LED or must it be a specific type of LED to allow corals and anemones to photosynthesize? ~I read somewhere that blue LED's can be used for moonlighting, however originally...

    I just added a submersible LED moonlight to my Reef tank yesterday. I set it up to turn on when my T5's turn off. I was looking at my tank today (night cycle) with the moonlights and the fish seem to be staying awake and moving around. Also not all of my corals are closing up when its...

Well it worked great last night but I just...

    I know that I am stepping in it, but I am looking for suggestions on how to set up the lighting in my tank. I bought a tank on Craigslist. It came with two MH retrofit reflectors, but will need new ballast and possibly a new mogul base (he cut the wires pretty short). I am thinking of getting...
