Refunium light ... above or side

Postby tiggertoe » Sun 16 Sep, 2018 12:41 pm

Hey guys , just after some infor... I’m in the middle of building a new sump... ( old one crack last week- water everywhere... ) anyway just want to know if there is any difference in having a refugium light on the side of the tank instead of hanging it from above???

Having the light on the side will work but you will have to clean glass a lot where light shines through as it will grow algae fast especially coraline algae.

If your not prepared to be wrong, then you'll never come up with anything original.
