Hi all,

Just wanting to find the relationship between the color of the tub and TVR? It seems like most of the LFS and all hobbists uses blue as the primarily color is there a reason why this is so?

There is even talk that using other colors except blue may somehow slow growth on the fishes? Yes there certain truths to it?


Rdgs,

Huister

Blue makes the red/orange appear more red to our eye and strengthens the red/white contrast. The blue used is a medium saturation which does not cause the fish colors to blanch, while being light enough to make it easier to see the fish.

Steve,

Thanks for the reply, so therefore can I conclude it is merely nothing more than just a visual effects than have any biological effects on the fishes....

cheers!
