  • Why Bright is Bad
    March 30, 2016 / 0 comment(s)

    Not a Bright Idea

    Here at iQuatics, the term “bright” is pretty much classed as a swear word; in fact, it’s so offensive to aquarium maintenance specialists like us that we’d consider typing “b****t” all the time, but that’s quite a lot of effort. As we’ll go on to explain, the “b-word” isn’t just inaccurate, it’s downright unhelpful, and can actually end up causing damage to your ecosystem in the long run.

    The White Choice

    As many an amateur aquarist will be aware, light exists on a broad spectrum that us human beings can actually only see a small part of.
