Re: what led ratio is good for soft coral's growth
In reference to the LED lighting question, I have seen 3 to 1 ratio as a standard but there are allot of factors you have to consider. Are you using a pre-made fixture or are you making something custom. Are you using one watt bulbs or are you using 3 watt bulbs. This also depends on the depth and spread you are trying to light. I have a 75 gallon tank and I am lighting it with 3 watt LED's (Royal Blue, Red, 15000k white, UV). My soft corals are responding very well to the mixture of lights that I have. I have 30 white, 10 royal blue, 4 red, 2 UV, and all are 3 watt bulbs.
