Product: Aqua Medic 88722 Aqualine T5 Reef White 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 White 10K is a bright white lamp with a colour temperature of 10,000ºK. The lamp simulates tropical sunlight and is the ideal basic illumination for marine as well as freshwater aquaria. aqualine T5 Reef White 10K enhances the natural colours of the fish and brings the brightness of tropical daylight into the aquarium, so plants and corals really thrive. For salt water aquariums, we recommend combining aqualine T5 Reef White 10K with aqualine T5 Reef Blue to increase the blue spectrum whilst for freshwater the combination of aqualine T5 Reef White 10K with aqualine T5 Plant Grow will enhance plant growth.
