Comments From the Owner

Sherman,

My octopus(frogspwan) did not melt under the LED. Instead it has shown good expansion similar to exposure to sunlight from the windows in addition to the PC lights. Definitely very promising.

My chiller kick frequency has been greatly reduced too. T

Beside the main tank aquarium lite are there other areas in our home
where electrical bill can be save?

Even in our aquarium beside our main tank lite our sump is also consuming
a lot of electrical energy.

Or denitrator,our phosphate reactor and our sump lite all are consuming electrical
energy to help our tank reduce NO3 and PO4.

Can we reduce NO3 and PO4 and light up the sump with less energy?
