||High output T-5 fluorescent tubes emit bright 6700°K light
||Provides the proper light conditions to encourage plant photosynthesis
||Great for planted freshwater aquariums or for general aquarium lighting
High output fluorescent tubes emit light in the 6700°K range to promote excellent plant growth. Simulates bright noon daylight that encourages photosynthesis in freshwater plants while enhancing the natural beauty of aquarium fish. Also ideal for marine applications including 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 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.
