NANO MARINUS REEFLIGHT
Light conditions as in a natural coral reef
With the specially developed Nano Marinus Blue/White 1:3 compact fluorescent tube it guarantees:
- fresh, vivid 10,000 kelvin light plus actinic blue light
- brilliant, fluorescent colours for corals and other sea creatures
- outstanding growing light for corals
Lighting is required for your Nano Cube not solely to enable you to observe the creatures in the aquarium, but also and above all to ensure proper nutrition of the corals. Almost all corals incorporate single-cell algae in their body tissue which cover the major portion of their nutrition needs. These so-called symbiotic algae (zooxanthelles) require ten (recommended) to twelve hours of light of a suitable strength and in an appropriate spectral composition each day for the purposes of photosynthesis.
Daily illumination with the attachable Nano Marinus Reef Light is thus of vital importance to corals. We recommend fitting the light with a timer to switch it on and off on a regular basis.
TIP for XL saltwater tanks:
Nano Marinus ReefLight is also extremely well suited to algae tanks in the cabinet.
