Why do I need aquarium lighting?

Aquarium lighting not only helps make your fish tank look better but also helps with creating biological balance helping to keep your fish and plants healthy. Aquarium lighting for plants and coral is vital and they will not survive in your fish tank environment without it. So it is important that a source of light is available in your fish tank at least 12 hours a day to promote plant growth and fish growth and help provide nutrients.

Algae Growth

Ideally aquarium lights should be changed every 12 months as after this time even though they still emit light, the spectrum of light will have changed which can promote unwanted algae growth. We also suggest to have your aquarium lights on a timer as if you leave them on for too long unwanted algae can also grow.
