Promotes coral growth
Solar Marin Blue promotes coral growth in marine aquariums. In addition it is the ideal night lighting for nocturnal animals. Combined with Solar Marin Day, it is the ideal lighting for marine aquariums.
The JBL SOLAR MarinBlue tube generates a strong blue light which is also referred to as actinic light. It is a particularly effective short-wave light from the blue and ultraviolet spectral range. When this tube alone is switched on it creates the glow of the corals and the desired moonlight effect. The actinic spectral range of this tube accentuates the fluorescence of corals and clams (e.g. Tridacna). The JBL tube doesn’t generate a pure actinic spectrum, but has spectral components added which are especially suitable for the light in marine aquariums. It is NOT useful to illuminate marine aquariums with actinic light alone since the corals in our care don’t originate from great depths but mostly from depths up to 20 m and thus receive strong sunlight. The combination of JBL SOLAR MarinDay and JBL SOLAR MarinBlue is perfect. If you only install one tube you should choose the JBL SOLAR MarinDay
