Is high-tech programmable led light better then conventional led light for planted aquarium?

Posted by on

I would say yes and no.It really depends on what you are looking for. For me, I prefer the programmable light, but it is not necessary.

In terms of plant growth, the conventional led light won’t be worse then the programmable. Whether the plant can grow healthily is all back to the basic “photosynthesis”, as long as you have a balance between light, Co2, and fertiliser, plants in aquarium will grow nicely in your aquarium.So when you are looking growing plant, then the answer is no. High-tech light cannot prove is better than conventional light.Most of the beginner is still struggling in stage of growing healthy plant, removing algae etc, the conventional led light is good enough for beginner to explore the hobby.

When you put the humanity into this hobby, then a high tech could give you a lot more enjoyment, especially for those working people.A high-tech led light can simulate dawn, daylight and dust throughout the day. When you got home after a long day work, you still want to enjoy the aquarium.With the high tech aquarium led light, you can have the aquarium light up, but not too strong, perfect match with your mood after a long day work. The aquarium also match with the environment with warm light that you had in the house, it won’t dominate your home due to the strong light same as daylight at noon.

You would feel so much more comfortable when you have the tank light up just like this one.This tank is using the TRIPLEH TS-2 aquarium LED light

How about this, your room won’t be brighten up (dominated) by the aquarium while it is not dark and you can enjoy your aquarium softly and comfortably.

For me, I really prefer a programmable aquarium light, which you can extent the time of light-on aquarium, while you won’t have the algae issue booming in aquarium.I love to enjoy my aquarium at night after work, and also morning during weekend. With a programmable light, I can have light in tank from 7am to 10pm, but only with strong light 4-6 hours during the day.So, if you have the budget, just go for one with programmable function. ^o^ Again, but that is not necessary!

We have a few high-tech led light in store.The TRIPLEH TS Series( ( have marine and fresh water plant version to select from.

Shark A80 ( for marine aquarium only, and has 8 colours to enrich reef colours.
