All Delight, have you noticed higher or lower light affecting any certain colors? Say you want to bring out more green in a piece, do you go higher or lower? Or say you see a piece in low light turning orange or red, does it need even less light or more light? Just curious if you've figured out any corrolation between light intensity and retaining specific colors.

I myself don't have good luck bring acans back once they lose color.

From my experience reds love light. One acan I have has a really nice green outter ring that circles the orange polyp. It was slightly there when I got it, but is now more pronounced in higher light. But that where I put in from day one.

T5's are great cause you can change the bulb configuration to your liking. More blue, less blue, etc.

I always rememeber the names of the ones that were really expensive. Kinda like you never forget the name of the prettiest girl in high school was. But you can't remember the girl that sat next to you. hahahaha

And you're welcome anytime Mike.

The colors are absolutely sick!

Any tips on keeping acans that you have learned with all these pieces?

They love t5's compared to halides. Bluer the light the better.

I have no experience with LED's. I'm still a skeptic. Old skool I guess.....

But at the shows, they look awesome under LEDS!
