Nano Light lets the sunshine in
The fully adjustable attachable Nano Light supplies the vital energy that enables the plants to develop into a fascinating underwater jungle.
The integrated, energy-saving compact fluorescent lamp Nano Amazon Day bathes plants and shrimps in fresh, vivid light, just like on a fine summer’s day. Excellent colour rendition ensures that all life in the aquarium is revealed in the full glory of its natural colours.
The daily lighting time should be 9-12 hours.
Plants love a midday break – algae don’t
While the lighting is on, the plants’ metabolism is in full swing. Light means “work” for plants. Consequently, they are grateful for a “midday break”. This gives them an opportunity to recuperate and to break down harmful metabolic products.
The following lighting rhythm has proven effective:
- 4-5 hours of light in the morning
- Then a break of 2-4 hours without light
- Followed by 5 to 7 hours of light
A time switch provides the simplest means of controlling lighting times.
