Our Caribbean Blue Lights are very unique and eye-catching. They create a different ambiance than the usual green Underwater Fish Lights, and definitely stand out of the crowd. Many people are interested in these lights over the green lights, but they have several questions. They want to know if the blue will attract the same amount of fish, how the blue will work in their waterway, and if the blue is as bright as the green lights.
The biggest thing to consider before purchasing the Caribbean Blue lights is the water clarity at your dock. For these lights to show the ideal color, the water needs to be crystal clear. If the Caribbean Blue bulb is placed in murky water, it will actually illuminate an amber/yellow color. If your water is murky, there is obviously more dirt and sediment that is in the water. These actually change the color of the light, because the blue light reflects off these particles, creating more of an amber glow rather than the blue most people are expecting. That is why any possible customers must have clear water in order to enjoy the color as intended.
One of the most popular question regarding our Caribbean Blue lights refers to the amount of fish they attract. Most of our fish lights on the market are green, and attract baitfish by reflecting off phytoplankton and particles in the water. These bait fish, in turn, attract the predator fish. These Caribbean Blue lights work the same way. Even though the lights are blue, they still reflect off particles in the water to attract the fish. The Caribbean Blue lights also have a photocell built into the system, just like the green lights, which not only ensure the bulbs are clean, but also continues to build a feeding cycle for the fish to keep them coming back every night. Because of this, we have named these lights Caribbean Blue, implying that they belong in crystal clear, Caribbean-style water to truly thrive.
Our other popular question regarding the Caribbean Blue is the brightness of the lights. These lights are 250-Watt Metal Halide bulbs. They are the brightest bulbs that we offer. They will be just as bright as our Vibrant Green Series, kicking up about a 15-foot diameter circle of light on the surface. Another thing to consider is the actual hue of blue these lights produce. These lights show more of an ice-berg blue. It is a subtle, ambient blue, rather than a royal blue you would see from an LED light, or on someone’s shirt.
While the Caribbean Blue look amazing in the water, there are a few things to consider, first. You will still see the same amount of fish at your dock, but you must ensure that you water is crystal clear. If you don’t have clear water, you’ll end up having an amber-colored light rather than a blue one.
