Product: Aqua Medic 88702 Aqualine T5 Reef Blue 54Watt
T5 fluorescent tubes are only 16 mm diameter and have many advantages in aquarium usage when compared with the more usual 26 mm (1") diameter T8 tubes. In the HO version they have a higher light output per unit length than T8 tubes and, if the correct electronic ballasts are used, a higher ratio of light output per watt of energy consumed. This increased efficiency, combined with the new range of phosphors used to create the colours offered, makes T5 the preferred fluorescent lamp for all modern aquariums.
These top quality lamps are manufactured in Germany and are available in 24, 39, 54 and 80 watt HO ratings in all colours
aqualine T5 Reef Blue is intended for use in salt water aquariums with the lamp emitting, almost exclusively, blue light in the spectrum between 400 nm and 500 nm, peaking at 420 nm. These wavelengths enhance the growth of many coral species. In addition,
when combined with Reef White 10K or 15K they give the aquarium a most natural appearance. aqualine T5 Reef Blue stimulates the natural effluorescence of corals especially if the aquarium is illuminated exclusively with aqualine T5 Reef Blue during a simulated dusk or dawn.
