Coral/fishtank floro light?
    #3913906 - 03/14/05 12:16 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I've got this actine blue coral light that is usually used for fishtanks, but I got it because when you look straight at it you can see all kinds of crazy floaters and shit, even when sober! IT's trippy as fuck!

But anyways, are these lights okay for initiating fruiting or should I just go get a regular office type floro, or maybe one of those growlights? The box said that it peaks at the same frequencies at which chlorophyll absorbs light (for plants in your fishtank I guess), I think it said like 460nm (blue). I would assume that it would work fine since this frequency is good for plants.

I could use a regular lightbulb, but I don't want to have to worry about high temps.

Thanks guys!

If it peaks at 460nm then it is certainly a good light for shrooms! Can you pick one up at any pet store?

Yes sir, Look for a blue floro that says "actinic". Usually for saltwater aquariums but available anywhere the sell fish.

AWSOME!!!

Yeah, actinic, that's it. You can find it at any pet store. Mine was like $14. But it's fucking trippy as hell! It also makes things glow like a UV light does, just not as well. It turns the whole room BRIGHT purple. It's super bright and kinda hurts your eyes if you have it on for too long...

Maybe the trippyness of the light will increase the trippyness of my shroooooooOOOOOOoooommmmsss!

Thanks alot!
