55 Gallon Saltwater Reef Tank

A few photos from my 55 gallon coral reef aquarium I had back at my Jamaica Plain condo. I had started an online business selling LED lamps for coral reef aquariums. That's what the blue lighting here is, the blue part of the color spectrum provides a high PAR level for coral growth and also plants growing while they are in their vegetative state. These lamps put out a lot less heat, so not only were they a fraction of the wattage of their metal halide bulb counterparts, but also did not throw out excess heat in the condo heating up the water and requiring additional electricity to cool the water.
