Bubble tip anenome - Current USA TrueLumen Pro deep water blue LED


I have a 55 gallon aquarium with two strips of 48 Inch Current USA TrueLumen Pro Deep water Blue LED StripLight.

Will this be fine for a bubble tip anenome? I only have blue LED on the strip. Do they need some white or is all blue ok?

Here are the specs of each strip (I have two)

Color: 445nm Blue
Watts per strip: 30 (60 total)
Number of LED per strip: 288 Blue

Typically that type of fixture is suitable for supplemental lighting and not intended as the main lighting source..

Its unlikely to be suitable for light demanding creatures/corals.

Who me?

You will need something more powerful. Look into one of the countless black box led fixtures available.

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 220g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs
