Oceanic 8 Gallon BioCube - Replacement 18 Watt Actinic 03 Blue Lamp Information




Do you have a lot of plant life in your aquarium? Many owners decide to have aquariums with a lot of plants instead of just having fish and other aquatic animals. You must admit, aquariums like this look different to other conventional aquariums with fish swimming around. Many aquatic plants used in aquariums also have photosynthetic capabilities to produce the oxygen needed by aquatic animals. You should think of using actinic bulbs, which are known to help photosynthesis in plants. If you are using an Oceanic 8 BioCube, also look for Oceanic 8 Gallon BioCube - Replacement 18 Watt Actinic 03 Blue Lamp Pet Store.

The bulb also tries to mimic the actual high-intensity light coming from the tropical sun during midday to cause the plants to photosynthesize. Bulb replacement will help you make sure that your plants' photosynthetic abilities are not disrupted in case the lamp you are already using suddenly fails. Also, you should know that actinic bulbs are usually effective for just a year since the intensity and the spectrum they emit tend to decline as time passes so regular bulb replacement is more or less a requirement. If you are using the Oceanic 8 Gallon BioCube to house your aquatic plants, also make sure that you also have the Oceanic 8 Gallon BioCube - Replacement 18 Watt Actinic 03 Blue Lamp for continuous oxygen-production in your aquarium.

Maintain healthy inhabitants in your BioCube aquarium system. Proper lighting conditions are vital for the health of such photosynthetic organisms as corals, invertebrates and plants. Since lamp spectrum and intensity decline as bulbs age, compact fluorescent lamps should be replaced yearly to ensure optimum lighting conditions.

Straight pin configuration.

10,000K Daylight - High-intensity purified super daylight
The 10,000K compact fluorescent lamp is a purified super daylight lamp that simulates the high-intensity lumen output of the midday tropical sun. It contains rare-earth color enhancing phosphors to emit sparkling, blue-white rays.

Actinic 03 Blue - 100% blue actinic 03 phosphor that peaks at 420 nanometers
The Actinic 03 Blue provides light in the 420 nanometer range that reflects color pigments in organisms such as corals, fish and invertebrates causing them to fluoresce glowing colors. Its spectrum resembles that of the absorption peak of chlorophyll-a, which is the most important pigment found in plant cells. Replacement compact fluorescent lamps for BioCube Aquarium Systems
