Fluorescent light tubes are still very popular among aquarists and have been available in the aquatic trade for many years.
We sell a range of fluorescent light tubes in a variety of sizes and color spectrums for both freshwater and marine aquariums.
T5 lighting are fluorescent tubes that are slimmer and more efficient than the older T8 tubes.
The T5 is 40% smaller in size, so can physically fit in more in the same space. It has a better light spectrum, greater brightness and has reduced power consumption. It can save around 30% energy compared to the T8 and can last up to 25% longer. There are also reduced mercury levels in the lamps.
