This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about corals digging the whole moonlight experience. Corals sense different lighting habits and tend to respond more favorably to blue lighting, think: actnics and moonlights. Researchers led by Oren Levy of the Center for Marine Studies at the University of Queensland, Australia, studied corals on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. “Reseachers found that the corals contain ancient proteins called cryptochromes which react to light. Cryptochromes have also been found in mammals and insects where they effect the circadian clock that regulates the daily rhythms of life.” Interesting. Perhaps picking up that light unit with moonlights isn’t such a bad idea after all. We’ll take two.
