Aquarium lighting certainly impacts your enjoyment of your aquarium. It can either bring your aquarium to life or just make it look like a glass box with some dim lighting and not attractive at all. Lighting is really a crucial element in any aquarium set up. There are many kinds of aquarium lights
in the market today. Many of them just produce visible light to make your aquarium well lit. Others seek to mimic a natural tropical light that has special features when you are viewing the aquarium at the bottom of the water.
In this respect, aquarium lights impact how your aquarium looks. If it is just regular visible white light and it is at the top of your water, it just lights up the water and looks like bright water, which is kind of boring. There are some lighting options in the market today that are designed to give your water very exciting shades. One of these is the Coralife 7100K Actinic Blue Fluorescent Light Bulb from Pet Store
. This light bulb uses 100% blue actinic component that has phosphor element that gives out light at maximum wavelength of 420 nanometers. What this all means is that this blue light simulates sunset on the ocean.
If you have ever spent a sunset on the ocean, you know how beautiful that scene would be. This color creates a blue tint on the deeper part of your aquarium. Not only does this make your aquarium look extra awesome, the wavelength of this light is the right size for invertebrates that depend on blue light for biological processes.
