Lighting is always important when it comes to aquariums. Corals and plants heavily rely on sunlight for photosynthesis, so exposure to light that closely simulates sun rays is a crucial need. However, a regular lamp is not enough. You need to use a lamp that is specifically designed for aquarium use, such as the 36-inch Coralife Aqualight Dual T5 Lamp High Output Fixture from Pet Store
This fixture actually houses a couple of T5 lamps that can produce a much higher output than T8 and T12 lamps used in dual light fixtures made by other brands. These T5 lamps are housed in a metal fixture with a wide base and a set of fully adjustable legs for easy maneuvering. To protect the lamps from exposure to the water in the tank, they come covered with a splash guard made of crystal clear acrylic.
The 36-inch Coralife Aqualight Dual T5 Lamp High Output Fixture comes with just one power cord even though it houses two lamps. The use of a lone power cord eliminates messy, intertwining wires that can be such an eyesore to an otherwise beautiful aquarium
. Also, this fixture has a built-in switch, so turning it on and off is a breeze.
Coralife Aqualight High Output T5 Fixtures. They provide significantly more light than conventional fluorescent systems. High Output T5 lighting is an excellent choice for saltwater, reef, or freshwater tropical aquariums.
