  • Coralvue Bulb burns?

    Hi all,
    Any1 has any experience with using these bulbs? I used to have 2 nos 400W SE bulb 10,000k and has used for 1 month. Suddenly some of my corals turned white and some even got their tissues burned. Initially, i thought it was bleaching due to over dosing of my zeo until i do some cleaning and maintenance of the lighting and shut down for 1 week. Then those bleaching sps returned to normal and tissues lost sps started to recover.

    I now realise that these are the causes of it. I am changing those bulbs to BLV for good.

      The CV SE bulbs are notorious for this.
