LED Aquarium Lighting is The Best Thing to Happen to Corals Since Saltwater!

Wow! new technology is so cool…

We have been using some of new Light Emitting Diode (LED) products and let me tell you, LED aquarium lighting is amazing!

A year ago I would never have believed that you can grow clams and acroporas and soft polyp stony corals with LED aquarium lighting alone. But Now I know that you can. At my aquarium store (Jim’s Exotic Fish) we have had a 60 gallon cube set up for over 2 months already in the store that is using only 60 watts of cree LED Lighting. The new aquarium’s dimensions are 2x2x2 and I have to say that I am completely impressed with the new growth and colors we are seeing in such a short time. And as you all may know…it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to aquarium lighting.

LED aquarium lighting

Can you believe that you can replace a 400 watt halide light with only 60 watts of cree LED Aquarium Lighting? I wouldn’t have believed it either, had I not seen it for myself with my very own eyes (in my very own aquarium shop no less)

With this new technology of LED Aquarium lighting you can wave goodbye to all the old aquarium lighting hassles. No more replacing expensive bulbs yearly, no more fading colors and (perhaps best of all) Our customers are claiming that they are saving as much as 60 dollars or more on their electric bill every month. by using LED Aquarium Lighting.

Another benefit of LED Aquarium lighting is that your aquarium will no longer be heating the whole room from expensive and red hot halide bulbs, and LED aquarium lighting is such a quiet alternative that you would probably forget it was on (if it wasn’t lighting up your whole tank of course) not to mention your aquarium chiller will be running (on average) at least 50 percent less of the time.

This technology is really catching on, in fact almost every major lighting company out there is jumping on this LED aquarium lighting bandwagon.

For live plant customers, Eco Exotic has come out with 8000k led aquarium lighting to use in addition to their regular 10000k and colored stunner strips, so you can customize your lighting to your specific needs.

Marineland has several LED Aquarium Lighting fixtures available for both reef and fish only aquarium systems.

LED Aquarium lighting is available in so many configurations and colors that I can’t even keep up. It seem like something new is delivered to my shop every week!

But you don’t have to take my word for it…

Stop by Jim’s Exotic Fish and check out this LED Aquarium lighting technology for yourself!
