    hi reefers, does anyone have news on developments with regard to plasma lighting availability in SA .I can source commercial units but they would need some serious amount of diy skills to get it to work properly on my tank

    as a technology they were not viable for SA market, there is a local company SA Induction Lighting that sells units for commercial installations but for hobbyists nothing mainstream

    Probably a stupid question but why is it not an available technology for sa and if the lighting spectrum is the same why would you not be able to blend with actinic led to make a diy lighting system, technical answers please

    There is no technical to reply why it's not viable other than cost , diy is not worth the effort for plasma when you can get led units that do the same
