Advantages of LED aquarium lamps

If a living organism is deficient in sunlight, it cannot grow and multiply. Light is also needed for plant photosynthesis.

Thanks to him, they preserve the natural color, feed and reproduce their own kind. In order for freshwater to feel good at home, they need to create suitable lighting.

LED lamps for the aquarium can be set by hand.

Lamps saturate the water with oxygen and valuable substances necessary for the life of the fish. In an artificial mini-pond place such types of units:

  • fluorescent;
  • LED;
  • incandescent lamps.

In winter, the light day should be increased, but the devices should not work 24 hours. The optimal day length for fish and aquarium plants is 10 hours.

It is recommended to place the devices on top in front of the tank.

To microorganisms are not affected, it is necessary to respect eco-balance. The water in the aquarium should be clean, lighting – even.

If the LED lamps for aquarium plants are located incorrectly or there are too many of them, the water begins to bloom and becomes dark green. Unicellular algae are also growing, clogging up the mini-pond and interfering with freshwater inhabitants.

If the fish swims to the surface of the water and starts to gasp for air, then it cannot breathe normally. Lack of oxygen may be associated with an excess of light.

LED LED-devices provide high-quality uniform lighting, they have several advantages compared with other types. If a freshwater inhabitant feels good in a mini-pond, he eats willingly, and ornamental algae quickly grows and multiplies.

Some aquarists add multicolored lamps. Such lighting uplifts the mood of the person, but not the fish.

You can include it once a month for guests. If you use multicolored aggregates every day, the fish will be depressed, the photosynthesis of plants will be disturbed.

Some fish breeders prefer halogen lamps. They save energy and give enough light, but heat the water, which is not very good.

Lamps of this type are not designed for mini-pond, but if necessary, they can be used instead of incandescent lamps, giving a yellow spectrum.

Incandescent lamp saturates water with oxygen, but also increases its temperature. Lamps of this type are useful for fish and other living things, but do not affect the photosynthesis of plants.

If there is ornamental algae in the pond, you should give preference to another species, otherwise the plants will grow dull and stop multiplying.

You can not use bright lights, as water can bloom. Incandescent bulbs are mounted if a compressor is not installed in the aquarium.

It is recommended to combine them with fluorescent or LED. The units are mounted on a large box, which is placed above the reservoir.

To reflect the light, you need to lay the foil on the bottom.

Fluorescent lamps last for a long time and consume little energy. They allow you to create a diffused light.

If there is a lot of vegetation in the aquarium, it is better to place devices that give warm light. Cold fluorescent units are ideal for predatory fish.

Aquarium lighting with LED lamps – ideal. They consume a minimum of energy and do not heat water.

Devices evenly scatter light. Instead, you can use the diode lights for the aquarium in the form of a tape.

It has an insufficient spectral range to illuminate the aquarium, so it will need to be combined with other units.
