iQuatics 24W T5 BLUE ACTINIC 420NM 24W - 438mm/18" (length) 5/8"- 16 mm (diameter)
This tube can be used on 55cm and 60cm light units. The following aquariums can be fitted with this tube:
These T5's are also compatible with the Aquatlantis range of T5 Lighting.
High Output T5's are better to use in your aquarium lighting than the regular T8 as they have increased water penetration and are more efficient. You don't lose the illumination at the bottom of the deeper tanks.
The greater intensity, deeper penetration and Higher output allows you to stock your tank with a wide range of soft corals and allow them to flourish which was not possible with T8 Fluorescents.
Key Benefits of our High Output T5's:
Our Blue Marine Actinic has specially selected phosphors producing actinic wavelength within the 420nm range of the spectrum thus enhancing the fluorescent colours in your corals.
With the slight purple/blue hue appearance, deeper penetration is gained due to the spectrum not being absorbed by the salt content in your aquarium.
Your tank may not appear as bright but the light it gives out has wavelengths specific to ideal growth conditions rather than containing the (useless for photosynthesis) wavelengths which the human eye perceives as a bright light.
The Marine Blue Actinic tube would ideally be used in conjunction with the iQuatics Marine White 14000k to help balance out the yellow hue to bring out the natural beauty in your aquarium.
