A lot of people have asked us what the best setting on the Satellite LED plus is for planted aquariums. We personally like to use the “yellow” setting you see on the second row below.
The “yellow” setting really brings out the full colors of all the plants and fish in the aquarium.
Above is a planted tank lit with 2 Satellite LED plus on “yellow” setting.
A lot of hobbyists using LEDs have realized most LEDs on the market now lack a red spectrum and does not bring out all the different orange, reds and yellows from the fish or plants. The Satellite Plus comes with 277 different color combinations you can choose from by just adjusting the arrows up and down!
