Lighting 101 Question


Recommended Posts

When I buy or move corals or anemones from one tank to another I try to keep the lighting intensity consistent, at least initially.  How do I do this, you ask?  By squinting really hard and pretending that I can detect the color/intensity difference with my naked eye.  Is there some sort of meter or way to measure lighting so that I can make good choices about placement?

Ooohhh.  That rings some bells.  There was a recent post that talked about PAR/PUR and lighting intensity.  As I recall it got kind of "intense" (pun intended) and I did not keep up with the thread.  I'll go back and see what it said.  Thanks for the response, newbie.
