  • Best T5 choice for colours on SPS

    I am not pleased with the colour of my SPS. I have 4 Aquablu+ (Deltec) 80w and 5 Arctinic+ (Deltec) 80w over my Aqualux 576l. I am for example not pleased with the purple Acropora and the green Hydnopora. Perhaps must I change the Arctinic + and use T5,s with purple/Uv A light spectrum. Do anyone have some thoughts? The water in the tank is perfect, no phosphate and nitrate! I use Grotech ABC and Korallenzuchts products such as iron concentrate, Kalium-Jodid-Fluor, Coral vitalizer etc.

        Yes. I’ve seen the new Aquablue Special and the powermoduls on AquaPro 2000:s webshop. But is the ATI ”Aquablue Special” and ATI ”Blue plus” the best choice for colouring SPS? It’s the best choice for growth but do they have enough light in the purple/Uva spectrum? I’m testing the Osram 67 T5 80W right now and I think some colour under this bulb is better then under the ATI bulbs. Have anyone tested any other bulb?
