The idea of “lighting up corals” with blue light is certainly nothing new. For more than a decade, reef aquariums have featured a standard set of two lights: white and blue. Hobbyists have been using “white light,” which has a broad spectrum, to illuminate their aquariums for viewing as well as for producing energy for their inhabitants’ photosynthesis and growth. The blue light added to most reef aquariums can also help with growth and photosynthesis, but it is primarily used to cause a biological response (termed actinic) in the animals, which usually involves a response to produce colors.

Our human eyes respond best to the green spectrum, the one that is least implicated in photosynthesis. However, the blue spectrum is arguably the most important part of the light spectrum for both planted freshwater and marine reef aquariums.Daytime Viewing – We recommend a blue wavelength light (such as those available on ). A blue light will give GloFish an exciting and uniquely fluorescent look, particularly in low lighting environments. Alternatively, a traditional white aquarium light (such as a fluorescent or halogen light) will work well for daytime use. Whichever light is used, please remember that GloFish® fluorescent fish absorb light and then re-emit it, so they will appear brighter and more vibrant as the amount of light is increased.So next time you’re gazing at your amazing marine reef aquarium and admiring how beautifully the blues are popping from some of your marine fish, or how intensely some corals are fluorescing, remember you owe that to the short wave lengths of visible light.Plants will grow with ordinary bulbs as they tend to have both some blue and red emissions. The problem is that they also have wavelengths between 500 and 600nm, which algae likes. Green algae and green plants use the same pigments for photosynthesis (chlorophyll a/b & carotenoids). So, light that helps one helps the other. The algae that are different are the blue-green algae (cyanobacteria), which contain Phycocyanin and absorb light heavily in the low 600nm (orange-red), which is unfortunately present in most standard fluorescents. In the planted aquarium artificial light should ideally peak (or be stronger) in the red area of the spectrum. The tanks’ appearance can be compensated (balanced) with blue light and some green light for brightness to the human eye. Strong blue light will cause plant growth to be more compact and bushy and will also tend to promote algae growth. So remember to balance 2/3 red to 1/3 blue light emissions.
