Light dependent corals in the sea are inhabited by so-called zooxanthellae, single-celled algae, which provide the host through photosynthesis with nutrients. Depending on the natural location of the coral (and depending on their depth), there is a more or less blue colored light, to which the zooxanthellae have adapted. Apart from the increased amount of blue in the light spectrum there is as well a sufficient light intensity required.
Giesemann AquaBlue Coral is the ultimate blue/white light spectrum for brilliant colors from your corals and fish. It is ideal in combination with the ACTINIC BLUE or SUPER ACTINIC to produce exceptionally beautiful color effects and the ideal light for all marine creatures that live in salt-water and reef aquariums. A special 70:30 combination of 6000K and 22000K (approx.) phosphor blend. It is specifically designed for reef aquariums mimicking sea water to a depth of one to twenty meters. It can be used for growing SPS corals up to 80cm in the aquarium. The tubes can be combined as well with Super Flora for fresh water, tropical fish and planted aquaria.
Length (including pins): 45 3/4”

– Made in Germany
AquaBlue Azure: New Giesemann AquaBlue Azure is a turquoise blue a 16-17000K lamp developed for reef aquariums providing higher PAR to enhance the colors and growth of corals whilst producing a rich turquoise blue for optimum aesthetics.
AquaBlue Coral The new Giesemann AquaBlue Coral is the ultimate blue/white light spectrum ( Special 70:30 combination of 6000K and 22000K) Enhancing brilliant colors from your corals and fish.
Super Purple: The New Giesemann SUPER PURPLE is the ultimate white/violet spectrum T5 lamp to accentuate coral and fish colors as well as providing proper light intensity for coral growth.
Actinic Blue: The New Giesemann Actinic Blue emits almost exclusively blue light of wavelengths from 400 – 510 nm, with a maximum at 420 nm. These wavelengths enhance the growth of many coral species in the aquarium, thus ensuring optimum lighting conditions.
Super Actinic: The new Giesemann Super Actinic emits a very strong, pure actinic spectrum, which generates a light white/violet effect in your aquarium that maximizes the fluorescence from your colorful corals. Ideal for supplementation of existing metal halide lighting.
