Build Your Solution
Blade Coral Growth is designed for maximum PAR efficiency and Blade Coral Glow is designed for maximum fluorescence. Mix them together and get the best of both. Peak performance is best achieved in a ratio of 2:1 Growth to Glow, but one of each is perfectly acceptable when less light is needed.

Attractive and powerful, an adjustable but easy spectrum ensures great coral growth. Edgefield™ Optics delivers well mixed colour and super even spread while preserving the caustics that make your tank sparkle.
