Metal halide bulbs are a popular choice for fish keepers who want a powerful light source. Metal halides designed for freshwater plants tend to be between 5500K-6500K, closely matching natural sunlight. Reef aquarium metal halide bulbs are usually higher, between 10,000K-20,000K, this pure light makes the most of the colours of your corals and promotes superb growth.
Lamps with a higher Kelvin rating will appear more blue whereas those with a lower Kelvin rating will appear more white or yellow.
