becos most of the time those who play tanning have look at the wrong side of the spectrum...

I put it as part of the reference is to highlight the usefulness of the other spectrum end

this is the main key to tanning and if u are using too low Kelvins...wat is resulted is always algae

alot of UV compare to us using side tanning in tank but it hits them on which location?

only the top...not the sides...this is where the stimulation should go...

err .... must tanning be direct on each part to have effect ??? i've always felt that when u r in the water, the reflections will tan u overall ... well, wat happens is that I swim quite a bit .... and its not my back that's dark only .... my body is also dark ... this is quite different from how we tan when we're out of the water ... when u lie face down, u get ur back burnt and when u lie face up, ur body gets burnt .... the overall tanning when u r in the water is pretty different ... this is of cos due to the reflections in the water and that UV rays penetrate water easily

i see ... ok so this is in relation to water quality rather than the wavelength of lights itself ...
