FAQ FOR LED AQUARIUM LIGHTING



  • Are LED lights good for growing aquarium plants?

The light emitted by incandescent or fluorescent lamps usually suits aquarium plants perfectly. However, this is not the case with LED bulbs. You need to conduct experiments in order to find out whether the emitted spectrum of an LED bulb is suitable for normal plant development or not.

  • How does the emitted spectrum of LED bulbs affect plant growth?

When selecting LED aquarium lamps, it is important that they are not only bright enough for normal photosynthesis, but that they also contain the blue and red frequency spectrums which are very important for the plants.

  • Do aquarium plants grow under LED lighting?

Yes, aquarium plants may grow under LED lighting, provided you choose the right one. Not all LED bulbs are suitable for aquariums and you should be aware of this before purchasing them. Carefully study the parameters of the bulbs you purchase and if their specifications specify a blue-red emitting spectrum, then such bulbs are definitely suitable for you.

  • Which LED bulbs can I use for my aquarium?

When it comes to the choice of LED lighting, it is always a matter of personal preference. Not everyone likes a certain colour. The best option would be to compare the different models of lights available on the market today before making a decision. By doing so, you will find light sources with a fixed emitted spectrum and those that allow you to adjust it.

Choosing light sources with an adjustable spectrum gives you greater flexibility in terms of optimum light setting for your plants, but these lamps also cost more.

  • Why are my aquarium plants dying?

There are many factors that may cause aquarium plants to die. The most common cause among aquarium beginners is that the wrong plants are purchased.

Not all aquarium plants can thrive under the same conditions. Some aquarium plants require special lighting to enable them to grow properly. Make sure you select the right type of lighting in the first place.

  • When should the lights in the aquarium be switched off?

Of course, it is beautiful to look at a brightly lit aquarium. However, there is a balance as to how much light an aquarium ecosystem needs per day. The lighting is supposed to mimic the natural environment of the underwater inhabitants, so it is important to turn it off at night. The ideal balance is to turn the lights on for 12 hours and turn them off for 12 hours a day.

  • How to hang LED aquarium lights?

You can install LED bulbs depending on the mounting options. Some of the lamps may need a special bracket, while others can be mounted directly to the aquarium. Even before you buy them, you should check the available mounting options to ensure that they will fit your aquarium.

  • How high can you hang the LED aquarium lights?

How high above the surface of the water you mount the LED lights will depend on a number of factors, such as the space available above the aquarium and the design of the lamp mount itself.

  • How do I adjust the light intensity of the LED lights in the aquarium?

Many commercially available aquariums come with different control options. Whenever you want to reduce the brightness of the lighting, all you need to do is use the controls to reduce the brightness to the desired value. Some LED lights have remote controls, which makes it possible to adjust the lighting in the aquarium without having to get off the couch.

  • How to make underwater LED lights for an aquarium?

When it comes to making LED lights of this type, you will need a number of materials, which can easily be found at electrical shops or on the Internet. Study the experiences of other aquarists in making these lights, which will eventually save you from embarrassing mistakes.

  • How do I set up the LED aquarium lighting?

Depending on the specifications of the LED lights, setting them up can be easy or difficult for some people. It is very important that you understand it the first time. Lighting equipment manufacturers usually enclose detailed instructions with diagrams, using which the correct lighting setup can be carried out relatively quickly.

  • How to use an LED light in an aquarium?

In most cases, you will find that LED lighting provides ample opportunity for experimentation and can give the entire aquarium a different, considerably more attractive look.

  • How do you program the LED lighting in an aquarium?

In order to effectively program the LED lighting in an aquarium, it is necessary to carefully study the instructions for it. Most manufacturers describe in detail how to do the programming with the appropriate LEDs.

If you have lost the manual, you can still obtain an online copy to assist you in the programming process. With programming, you can easily determine the spectrum to be emitted during the day or night. You will also be able to select when the lights will come on and off.

  • What should the intensity of the LED aquarium lighting be?

The intensity of the LED lighting for an aquarium depends on the plants and fish you have chosen to grow and keep in it. For the vast majority of the plants, the light intensity may lie between 0.25 and 0.5 W per litre. In some cases, more than 1 watt per litre is required. To increase the efficiency of LED lighting, it is advisable to use a good reflector.
