Since most aquarium inhabitants live in seawater depths where the light is very blue, it is needed to simulate this natural living conditions in the aquarium. The Giesemann Actinic Blue has therefore been developed to enhance the blue proportion in marine aquariums. 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.
Giesemann Actinic Blue reinforces the natural fluorescence of corals and brings them excellent to bear – especially in the twilight phase when being used alone. The optimal use of Giesemann Actinic Blue is the combined with either the Giesemann super actinic or super purple or combined with our MEGACHROME HQI bulbs. Giesemann Actinic Blue should never been missed for the lighting of coral reefs in any aquarium.
