UVL 46 Inch 454 (85% TriBand Blue 15% 420nm Nichia Phosphor) V-HOR T5 Fluorescent Bulb Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

If you want your fish tank to shine without the hassle of buying expensive materials, then you should look for fluorescent bulbs that do not rely on brand names. Look for lamps that has the right output and intensity so while enhancing color visually, the growth of other organisms are not sacrificed. UVL 46 Inch 454 (85% Triband Blue 15% 420nm Nichia Phosphor) V-HOR T5 Fluorescent Bulb Pet Store is an example of cheap yet wonderfully working light fixture.

This T5 high output lamp offers 20% brighter light due to a built-in internal reflector. The intensity is much better that normal output lamps; it has higher par and lumen value so even at lower wattage, the light intensity is comparable, if not truly better. Even with a more concentrated light, heat emission does not increase, keeping your aquatic life safe from temperature increase. This is also beneficial for the lamp itself because it adds shelf life and color rendering index, leading to a fuller color display.

UVL 46 Inch 454 (85% Triband Blue 15% 420nm Nichia Phosphor) V-HOR T5 Fluorescent Bulb is a very effective bulb that can function well even in deep tanks. It will last up to 18 months so your money is worth this product.

Burned out ballast

Reviewers Rating Below Average

Comments: It appears that a Super Actinic bulbs I received with this shipment was defective and burned out my balast. There is a loose piece rolling around in both of the Super actinic bulbs that is not present in any other bulbs. The ballast has been in use the last 3 years with no problems but with the new bulbs burned out in one day. At this point I think there is a problem with the UV super actinic bulbs. I am giving 2 stars as I have had good results with UV bulbs in the past. Lets hope this is a short term issue with quality.

Comments: UVL as always, an excellent product. Gives the tank great color and a beautiful look. I like this blue color more than the actinics themselves, but still using in combination with the actinics.
