UVL 46.5 Inch 110W Super Actinic VHO T12 Fluorescent Bulb Information




You may think that aquariums can just do fine with a regular fluorescent light or an all-purpose bulb - if you are a novice to aquariums.

Enthusiasts and experts alike agree that using non-specialized lighting is not advisable. Ordinary lighting usually gives off a lot of heat, and this can affect the temperature of the water in your aquarium. You don't want that to happen, because the water in your aquarium should maintain temperature levels that are suitable for the fish, corals and plants you have.

If you can't use ordinary fluorescent lights and incandescent bulbs, what should you use? Here is where the UVL T12 VHO Super Actinic Bulb from Pet Store comes in. This bulb is specifically made for aquariums. It has its blue spectrum at 100%, so the light it gives off has a bluish tint. It's not too hot and doesn't burn out easily. It also brings out the vibrancy and vividness of your fish's and corals' colors, making them look even more beautiful than they already are. If your aquarium is also doubling as a display piece, this is surely welcome news to your ears.

At 110 watts, the UVL T12 VHO eats up only a small amount of electricity, so your aquarium can enjoy the benefits without you worrying about your electric bills.

Super Actinic R is the most widely used aquarium lamp on the market. 100% blue spectrum. 180° internal reflector allows 40% more light output. Great for reef applications and coral enhancement.

Super Actinic R (420nm peak) = 100% blue spectrum. These are the most widely used aquarium bulbs on the market. They are great for reef applications and coral health.

Comments: I have not used led lights yet but have seen many of them over reef tanks and to this day I have not see anything that will make the colors in a tank pop like they do when you use a set of VHO lights with a icecap ballast.

Comments: These bulbs are performing nicely. The spectrum is leaning toward 420 nm on a coralife ballast. The intensity is sufficient. The corals are really flourescing nicely. I am also pleased with the service offered by Marine Depot. Not only was the product delivered quickly, correspondence was excellent.

Comments: Bulbs arrived very well packaged. I use 2 of them to give dusk/dawn effect over my 180 reef. I leave them on even with my 14k halides. When the halides turn off in the evening the colors of all my corals really pop and look amazing.
