Lighting for the aquarium is one of the most essential and vital components to a successful reef, fresh or marine aquarium. There are 3 main types of lighting which are the most common in the aquarium industry. First being Metal halide lighting. Metal halide lighting is slowly losing its popularity due to the wattage and power requirements but is proven to be effective. T5 Lighting is still pretty standard in marine tanks and is proven to be very positive for coral growth and color. The most popular (which made an explosion in 2012) is LED Aquarium Lighting.
