If you have a coral reef aquarium
, you would know that its requirements are much different from a regular fish aquarium. In addition to requiring a lot more calcium than a standard aquarium set up, coral and reef aquariums need a different kind of light. Not all lights are the same because they emit differing wavelengths of light and coral requires a certain wavelength. For example, whereas a regular and bright light is good for your tropical fish, live rocks, corals and related marine varieties need actinic white. This is 12,000K rating and is composed of 50% spectrum white light which is triband and the other half is blue phosphors.
This combination of light helps your coral with its biological processes because coral times its biological operations based on light cues and temperature cues from nature. An excellent light bulb to get actinic light is UVL 48 inch 110 W Actinic White VHO T12 Fluorescent Bulb from Pet Store
