With every LED aquarium lighting, there is a control software included which you can choose to perform any options.

Yes. LED lights are suitable for a reef aquarium. I will start with my qualitative, personal experience here. I switched about two years ago, and I can’t imagine using any other lights from this point on. There are some technical differences in the light output, that I will get into in a little bit, but if I’m being intellectually honest with you, I don’t notice any meaningful difference in performance. The lights go on in the morning, they shut off at night and they grow corals all day long.
But don’t just take my word for it, check out this article highlighting a scientific study comparing the growth rates of several coral species under LED lights.Incandescent lighting is still used in some aquariums, but more economical and visually pleasing options like fluorescent and LED are the norm. Fluorescent lighting is cooler, brighter and uses less electricity than incandescent. It is a common type of aquarium lighting, although LED is surpassing it in popularity. For peak performance, replace incandescent and fluorescent lamps annually. LED lights are the most economical and energy efficient and offer a wider range of lighting options.Fish rely on a regular day/night cycle for optimum health, however brightness is less important and too much light can cause algae growth. Live plants, on the other hand, need strong light (which is different than brightness level) and a broader spectrum for photosynthesis. Certain fluorescent lamps and LED bars can enhance the colors in fish and the overall appearance of your aquarium. Our GloFish® LED aquarium lights are designed to create a GloFish optimized environment. All feature blue LED lights that highlight the fluorescent colors of the fish. Innovative and sleek, they feature blue LED lights that enhance the fluorescent brilliance of GloFish.
