Sump lights ?
Posted 09 April 2017 - 04:33 PM
My sump is the standard one that comes with the reef space 900 so not massive but should make a good place for pods to grow and help ph swings ?
What lights are people using in there sump ?
Thanks guys and girls

If your going to grow caulerpa algae try keep lights on all time so LED is way forward. Caulerpa will go asexual if lights go out for long periods and leach the nutrients back in to the tank. Safest bet is just stick with Chaetomorpha algae and when ur display lights go off turn sump lights on this will help with ph swings when the display lights are on turn sump lights off. I have loads if you want some?

It's on for about 18hrs on reverse daylight ....as mentioned above to help keep the ph form swinging too much.
makes sure you do the lighting over lap before the DT lights start to ramp down...or a few hours before they turn off....the same in the morning
My sump doesn't switch off till 2pm and then back on around 6-7pm

So by having a big overlap your giving the sump time to stabilised
