MARS Aqua 300W

Thread starter #1
Hi All, I have a MARS (Aqua) Aquarium 300W LED light dimmable to 100W I was wondering if this light would be acceptable for seedlings/clones and maybe even Veg? I found a couple of sites were they say yes but I would like to know what you guys think.

Thanks

Was hoping to get a bit more feed back on this subject, by looking at the number of views I see there is a interest no the topic maybe just not a lot of experience. I will use the MARS Aqua and let everyone know the results later on.

As long as it's a general purpose/freshwater light you should be fine. From the specs it looks like it is. LED's designed for salt water have a different spectrum geared for coral and invertebrates.

yes it was bought and used by my wife on her salt water tank,
Should be OK with the specs listed. I know on my salt water tanks the spectrum is heavy in the 12-16k range and then again at the bottom in UV. The light you listed is more centered around 10k. It won't be optimal but it will work.
