What a difference lighting makes!

Оценок: 759 | Просмотров: 74930
My goal in making this video isn’t so much to give a primer to beginners it is to illustrate just what a difference lighting can make. Corals can color up differently under different lighting systems to varying degrees, but lighting systems can also drastically affect the appearance of the same exact coral.

Awesome video. I would appreciate a more in depth video explaining what type of lights, exactally, give each view. This would help me in choosing a light fixture for my upcoming Reef. And picking coral to fill it.?
Matan Geva (6 месяцев назад)
absolutely yes!!

I find I almost always prefer near daylight CRI vice the too much blue and UV that most folks show/grow their corals under.

I use a Finnex 24-7 Marine plus LED. Im very new to Salt Water. Is this light suffice to grow my corals? Thanks

I would have to disagree with the statement that lighting is the most expensive aspect of reef keeping. I would have to say the most expensive aspect of reef keeping is your water quality and the stability of it. You can pick up a semi descent LED fixture put it on your tank and have beautiful colors. LEDs use very little electricity, last forever, and produce very little heat. But without stability you will fail. When talking water quality and maintaining it I feel that's where the $$$ comes into play. Even if you know exactly what you're doing ( which no one really does in this hobby) your methods of achieving and maintaining water quality can quickly run up your cost of operation. Thru trial and error, more trials and more errors... the possibilities of money spending can sometimes seem endless. Find a good LED fixture and find YOUR method of balance and leave it at that. Just speaking from experience. 🤙🏼

No better way to illustrate the different effects, than to split the screen on the same coral under different lighting. Great video.
SQUEEKER Radio (8 месяцев назад)
One thing I think would have made this a PERFECT video is just a simple statement saying what globes or settings you used to achieve the different colours. I.e artinic 20k all ati blue plus. 14k ati corral plus, etc etc 10k etc etc. Make it alot more informative.

Absolutely love this video Than. I just recently bought 2 corals from WWC Orlando on ebay auctions and they looked phenomenal! Beautiful blues and reds and such. When I put them in my tank(which has SBReef leds)....the blues looked GREEN! The reds kinda redish/brown. Called them to ask and they told me they used Radions Gen4s.....both are leds, but the lighting result is completely different! Hope to see more of your lighting videos to possibly add t5 lights to my tank. Thanks Than👍

I like the natural, more real colored than the neons..
Carl Eckelman (1 год назад)
Ok That helps but what should we set our lights up for better colors Say for pink do more. Violet? Or add more blue?
Sassifrass7 (1 год назад)
Hi, I would love to know more about lighting in a salt tank. I got an expensive LED lamp with a computer program on my phone,...and no matter what I do I can't bring out the beautiful coraline alge on the rock with it. It just looks dull and dark. The fish look fine, but the rocks don't. I can change all the different colors and make different combinations,.....more red? Less Red? More green? blue? UV? White? What can I do to make it prettier? Also, my Zoa's aren't doing well at all,.....I wonder if it's too bright for them? Maybe I should lower them in the tank?
Foxi Frags (1 год назад)
Repeating a question that was asked but wasn't answered. What is the name of that beautiful creature in the beginning of this vid? I must learn more about it but need a name to search for it. Have a beautiful day/night. Sincerely, Kristi aka Foxi "You don't love an animal bcuz it is beautiful, It is beautiful bcuz you love it. <3

MOAR on Lighting!!! Always up for some learning!!
BecWells (1 год назад)
Yes yes, more more on lighting. Most tanks just turn out too blue, I would like to bring out more of the rainbow hues such as in the chalices and Acans etc. I have heard that the green and yellow spectrums on LEDs are really just for fresh water so the only choices you have are the blues and whites, please tell us how you achieve more rainbow spectrum with LEDs.

Does bluer light make the corals have brighter colors? I'm not talking about how it makes the corals look, I mean will it make the coral grow different algaes in it's tissue, I ask this because I like white daylight and I don't rally like blue tanks, will making the light blue while I'm at work make the corals look better in white light at night when I get home? Thanks. A video going more in depth into this topic would definitely be awesome.
Accio Butterbeer (1 год назад)
Yeah, IME some corals will actually grow more of certain colors under different lighting than under blues. For example. If I buy a coral that was aquacultured under mainly blues and then put it in a daylight tank it physical color concentrations would definitely change, if Iput the same coral back into its original spectrum it will have "morphed" as they call it.

Jeetendra Prasad (2 года назад)
You have hit the nail on the head so to speak...im in the process of setting up a 355gal Fiji Reef system at home (well for the past year or so) and STILL haven't decided on the type of light?going back and forth between two different Kessil 360 and AP700, Hydra, Zetlight, Maxpect Ethereal, Ecotech....im looking par reading, control, price and look...still haven't decided!sigh.

Which coral is at start of the video 0:13 - 0:26 ? Thanks
Brett Beadle (1 месяц назад)
It's strawberry pseudocorynactis
Brett Beadle (1 месяц назад)
In a previous video on mushroom coral he said it's a mushroom
Sam Osborne (3 месяца назад)
It's a sort of orange ball anemone but it it's not a anemone, it's a corallimorph. Than talks about it In his mushroom vid :)
Sarah Allen (5 месяцев назад)
me too, I think it's an anemone
Jacobo Lopez (9 месяцев назад)

your lighting is very close. The corals I get from you are pretty much what they appered as on my screen. there is a local store I go to that only uses blue lights and it fools me every time!
Rob Miller (2 года назад)
more on lighting!
Chris Auer (2 года назад)
More would be good, can be difficult to 'test' a new light without purchasing expensive units or seeing them in action at the LFS!

hey than... china is great. wish i could say the same for my tanks... haha.. been a little stale recently with my lack of attention due to my daughter entering the world... but im trying to get things back in order. good video though.. you really went into great detail, its amazing how a little change in light goes a long way.

Great Video. A deeper look at lighting and how it effects coral coloration and growth would be great. Thanks for all your efforts and invaluable information on the reefing hobby. I always take your advice to heart, as it stems from long and hard-won experience.
Merle Mitchell (2 года назад)
Fantastic example! Yes please do more on this subject.

Would love to hear your lighting recommendation for best overall color rendering.
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
I like the look of ATI blue plus quite a bit.
Inappropriate Reefer (2 года назад)
Seeing what you featured so far, I think your subjective recommendation would be in line with what most people would find pleasing as well... for me at the very least, lol. Would still love to hear your bias thoughts. =)
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
That is going to be super subjective.

I would love to hear your thoughts on lighting Than. Hopefully that video will come soon as I had purchased a acan that was red and teal when I bought it and it turned orange under my lights.
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
Acans change quite a bit under different light. IMO they color up best under T5.
Patty O'Grady (2 года назад)
Also run them from 0900 till 1800 w an hr ramp each end
Patty O'Grady (2 года назад)
I'd like some of the same but w more which light at what intensity etc. I have hydra 26 HD over my tank. I am just fowlr for last 8 mos and now have one rbta for last month. I have all blues and uv at 50% red and green at 20% and cool white at 25%. I have no idea if that's correct. I'd love some advice. Rbta seems fine. Is growing and eating Hasn't moved. But I'm not sure my intensities are right. At store he was rose coloured. In my tank he is orange and green.
Patty O'Grady (2 года назад)
+Tidal Gardens Inc. thanks
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
If it's working for you I would not be in a huge hurry to change anything. If you do decide to experiment, just change one thing at a time.
Dave Sorensen (2 года назад)
Aww... how could you not say which kind of lighting was which picture?
Dave Sorensen (2 года назад)
Aha! Thank you so much.

competitive bbq?
915Mang (2 года назад)
+Tidal Gardens Inc. Thats to bad. Thats they thing with us Reefers, we're always changing it up. Better lights, bigger tanks, more flow. But getting out of the Hobby all together?! Have a good one!

He quit the hobby and started doing competitive BBQ... seriously. I can't make this stuff up.

Good information is always it's weight in gold. The more info provided by you greatly helps the hobbyist make intelligent decisions. Thanks much.

Lighting is more complex than water chemistry. We're trying to do what the sun does in nature. There are so many variables that it becomes a mind boggling task. That said, people are very successful with different kinds of light. I've seen wonderful SPS dominant tanks under T5s, MHs, and LEDs. So, what parameters need to be met? PAR? Lumens? Depth? Density? Confused.
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
Even with natural sun lighting is difficult. Half the corals in my greenhouse hate the sun.
T Surro (2 года назад)
Yes deeper view!!
Chris Visconti (2 года назад)
going deaper in lighting would be good

More on lighting! Which lights make fluorescence come out?
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
All blue LED is probably the light that shows off coral fluorescence the best. Other types of lighting will likely be better at coloring up the corals themselves.
Rico Suave (2 года назад)
On that last one what color was the middle ?
Tidal Gardens (2 года назад)
That one is probably an ATI aquablue special
Powerslayer (2 года назад)
Right? what a red color! +1 this
Ruben (2 года назад)
This was a great topic. Do more of these video and maybe explain what lighting it being use. Thanks for sharing.
Arrick L (2 года назад)
Yes more on lighting. Maybe showing corals under different lighting types not just different bulbs even though this video did show a dramatic difference in just one type of lighting
bonelessevil (6 месяцев назад)
I would definitely like more information on lighting. Currently using Hydra 26's on a Reefer 425 XL deluxe. I'm running a mixed tank, so getting the right par (Apex par meter) for hard corals as well as soft, is difficult.
juan sanchez (2 года назад)
I have a led lighting system name brand ZET light some local fish store said to me that led light won't work as good as a T5 light on coral any advice
sky a. (2 года назад)
+juan sanchez depends on the size of your tank but the ZET looks legit I would not add a T5 to that actually, you good
juan sanchez (2 года назад)
+CoastalHaz so led light will work just fine right
sky a. (2 года назад)
use both LED and T5
Rochelle Rainville (2 года назад)

unfortunately most hobbiest don't do Their research on lighting and become very disappointed in the purchases they make discouraging them from buying more. more in depth information is better if available, thanks for sharing friend.

Thanks! There is a lot of information out there and it can seem overwhelming.
