    We try to keep up with what's going on in the hobby. If you are not aware, recently there has been information and conversations going on about blue light and is it effecting our eyesight. Cree (manufacturer) has done a study and put out information concerning their blue Leds.

    Without going into more detail, here's a few screenshots of a conversation by Steve Tyree (with Sanjay's response)

    I hope I attached them in order. My apology if I didn't.

    To get more information, attend the Midwest Aquatic Convention in Naperville, Illinois November 10th & 11th! Presentations and a speaker panel will be discussing this and other lighting information. We will be there!! Stop by our booth, say Hi and buy your corals from us!

    So... don't look directly into the blue lights? Based on that language it sure doesn't seem like there's much of a concern for typical reef lighting scenarios.

    Yes but, it's more than that.

    The water ripples, working in the tank with the reflections, etc. Are some of the variables. It's similar to fishing. Eye protection is warranted with just the little amount of information known through research. Noone is advocating to get stop using leds/blue lighting but exercising caution is advised
