Crees 3 Watt XP-E2 Blue 465-485nm is a great Moon Light and like the Royal Blue it does have a significant effect on photosynthesis. It is best used to bring out certain coral colours along with enhancing photosynthesis. Our recommendation for looks and growth is a 4-6:1 ratio of Royal Blue to Blue.
It is also used with low current (50-350mA) to simulate a natural moonlight without the actinic pop our Premium Royal Blues have. For a Moonlight, generally only a 1 or 2 are needed without optics for each foot of tank length. Moonlights when used in conjunction with a quality controller will help simulate the natural reef environment.
Note: When using the BJB Solderless Connectors only the Carclo Optics fit
