When it comes to aquarium systems
, it is very easy to see the importance a pump or filter plays in your indoor aquatic ecosystem. Both these crucial pieces of equipment's importance stems from one central truth - water quality is life. In other words, if your water is so badly polluted by dissolved toxins like ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites due to bad filtration, your fish will become vulnerable to parasites, get stressed, and can eventually die. The same story goes with bad pumping.
If you have a bad pump, your water becomes poorly oxygenated. If oxygen levels drop low enough, your fish will eventually die. While the impact of good lighting on your aquarium system may not be as dramatic as the absence of a good pump and/or filter, the absence of good lighting does dramatically reduce your enjoyment of your aquarium. You bought your system so you can enjoy the vibrant color of your fish and the vivid details of your plants. Why degrade your enjoyment with inadequate lighting?
Also, if you have plants and animals that need natural light for biological processes like photosynthesis in plants and seasonal behaviors in fish, lighting is crucial. If you're looking for a good aquarium light that brings your system to life and give off light your plant and fish life need for optimal health, try a 20 Inch Current USA 6X18W Nova Extreme Pro T5 HO 3-10K/3-460NM Actinics from Pet Store
. This light gives off the right wavelenght light to bring your aquarium to life.
