represent the pride of Aqua Vim as aresult of years ofscientific research and study in marine animals. They are specially designed fortrue reef tanks with corals demanding optimum light distribution. If you want to makeyour corals happy so they stretch out and produce vibrant fluorescent colors for maximum aestheticenjoyment, an Aqua Vim MH reef lighting system is your best choice. AquaVimMH reef light systems help achieve higher wattage per gallon and fuller oceanic light spectrums than any other lights on the market andare ideal for luxurious high tanks like Aqua Vim's Ocean View and Moon Viewaquariums. Reef light is equipped with 2 separate wires for you to connect with your timer to simulate natural day/night lightcycle for facilitating spawn activities of your marine pets. The 14"-wide3.5"-high fan-cooled fixture provide maximum wattage and fits in most canopiesof Aqua Vim's Ocean View and Moon View aquariums. Magnetic ballasts in our metal halide system design are purposely utilized to start-up slowly to prevent aquaticpets from light shock, and to extend the lives of your bulbs. Both MH and T5 ballasts are all housed in a well-designed remote "heat sink" box that you can place in either horizontal or vertical position to save space in your cabinet. Separately extruded housings divide T5 bulbs from the metal halide bulbs to keep excessive heat from effecting lives of bulbs. Each systemincludes both metal halide and T5 HO bulbs, suspension kit and supporting legs.

Saltwater reef tanks with corals, clams and other light needing organisms will need the high output, very high output Fluorescent or metal halide lamps. Certain corals, anemones and clams require very intense lighting levels that can only be provided with T5-HO, VHO and metal halide light sources. A general rule of thumb for reef tanks is between 4 and 10 watts per aquarium gallon. Many reefers have lighting systems incorporating metal halides and VHO Fluorescent tubes. Research the species you want to keep because light requirements can vary. Because of the amount of heat these light units can produce, you may need to get an aquarium chiller to keep your tank water temperature in an acceptable range. The expense of lighting a reef tank may be just as high or higher than the cost of the live rock or even the price of all the other equipment combined.Offering significantly more light than conventional fluorescent systems, High Output T5 lighting is an excellent choice for saltwater, reef, or freshwater tropical aquariums.

Aqualight High Output T5 Dual Lamp Fixtures come complete with two high output lamps. Each high output lamp can provide approximately twice the light output of a traditional T8 lamp making these fixtures a great choice for saltwater aquariums and aquariums with live plants.

Aqualight High Output T5 Dual Lamp Fixtures feature a quality design including:An overview of Fluval T5 HO (High Output) fluorescent lighting series for fresh and salt water aquariums, including Power Spectrum, Life Spectrum and Actinic I. For more information, visit A 1 bulb T5HO fixture on a 16" tank is NOT "high light planted." Have you ever successfully ran a “medium" or "high" light” aquarium with one T5HO bulb? I've never heard or read of anyone doing so, and won't believe it until I see it. Two to seem plausible, but only in the upper reaches of the tank.
