Hi,
I am hoping that someone can point me in the direction of a good, reasonably priced ($100-$175), dive flashlight with blue LED's? I am told that blue works better than UV to fluoresce corals?
Thanks for any help.

are you going to actually dive with it, or use it to observe your aquarium.

Lumens are your best friend on a night dive.

I love my Light and Motion Sola. I use it most every single weekend, very reliable torch light thats hand mounted which i love. free's you up for other things.

to answer your original question, there's several manufacturers that offer fluorescing torches.

at best, i'd use it for your 3rd light source if youre planning on diving with one.

Good luck, and tell us how it works out.

I plan on diving with it off the coast of Vieques. Do you use a yellow visor over your mask?
I am very interested in fluorescing some zoas and what appears to be brown Scolys.
Thanks for the links!

Nah,

too focused on enjoying the scenery, snapping some pics and not losing my partners glowstick light:)
