Will the Stunner grow hard coral or SPS coral?

Depending on configuration and the number of Stunners used, the Stunner can support a wide variety of animal life. However, we recommend using the Stunner LED for accenting the colors of coral and using it to supplement other lights.

    To anyone looking to use this lighting to grow LPS, soft corals, mushrooms, and polyps I can speak for the stunner strips and say they will grow these corals well. I can't say for SPS yet but I will try and post those results. Personally my configuration results in too much light which I tone down using the dimmers but the color is amazing. After a few months of using the Stunner Strips I have noticed no difference in growth rate since changing over from T5 actinic/daylight I would definitely recommend using this product for growing the aforementioned coral types. However if you do see a slower growth rate this may mean you have to buy another strip to increase the output.

    The short answer is 'yes', the Stunners alone will color up and grow stony corals such as Montipora, Pavona, Acanthastrea, Leptastrea, which are all in my 12g, but you'll need 4 or 5 and all should have the individual reflectors.  My corals sit about 12" from the LEDs and I've been pleasantly surprised at the improvement in coral color and accelerated growth (five Stunners replaced my Cad Lights normal output T5s).  I'll be attempting a few of the more hardy  Acropora soon, so that should be interesting.

    Added a couple Acropora frags (A. miilepora (green), A. granulosa and an ORA Red Planet).  All of them are showing encrusting growth and color is holding well on the Milli and the Granulosa.  THE ORA RP is showing some red and green, which is typical (total red coloration requires more intense lighting).
