||High output T-5 fluorescent tubes emit actinic light peaking at 420nm
||Strong emissions in the blue region simulate light conditions in deeper water
||Ideal lighting for reef aquariums with photosynthetic corals
Space-saving 420nm fluorescent tubes peak at an actinic range of 420nm. Provide the proper light necessary for healthy growth of photosynthetic corals. Strong emissions in the blue region of the spectrum simulate the softer light conditions of dusk/dawn and the blue hue of deeper water. Great for reef aquariums.
Use T-5 tubes with compatible T-5 light fixtures with high output electronic ballasts to help increase efficiency and tube life. The average life of T-5 tubes is 2 years, with the blue/actinic spectrum lamps lasting up to 18 months.
Introduction to T-5 Fluorescent Lighting
Unbelievable brilliance, tiny size - the most advanced fluorescent lighting available.
Economical aquarium lighting takes an exciting step forward with the introduction of the latest in fluorescent lighting technology. The T-5 HO (high output) lamp is only 5/8" in diameter. These thin tubes produce almost twice the light output of standard fluorescent tubes. In addition to their brightness, you can fit more of these slim tubes into the same amount of space. This means more light in less space. T-5 tubes are an economical, high light output option for both fresh and saltwater applications.
Current SlimPaq high output T-5 lamps generate the ultimate spectrum for living reefs. Its proprietary blend of Nichia tri-phosphors provides maximum watts per lumen output, promoting high coral growth and excellent color rendition.
