UVL 48 Inch 110W Actinic White VHO T12 Fluorescent Bulb Information




If you have a coral reef aquarium, you would know that its requirements are much different from a regular fish aquarium. In addition to requiring a lot more calcium than a standard aquarium set up, coral and reef aquariums need a different kind of light. Not all lights are the same because they emit differing wavelengths of light and coral requires a certain wavelength. For example, whereas a regular and bright light is good for your tropical fish, live rocks, corals and related marine varieties need actinic white. This is 12,000K rating and is composed of 50% spectrum white light which is triband and the other half is blue phosphors.

This combination of light helps your coral with its biological processes because coral times its biological operations based on light cues and temperature cues from nature. An excellent light bulb to get actinic light is UVL 48 inch 110 W Actinic White VHO T12 Fluorescent Bulb from Pet Store. This fluorescent bulb gives your live rock and coral aquarium the right triband actinic phosphor light that it needs for maximum health and wellness. All of these bulbs have a 30-day warranty because of their extreme fragility. However, if you take good care of them, they should last quite a long time. Check out the UVL 48 inch 110 W Actinic White VHO T12 Fluorescent Bulb today.

Actinic white is the first of its kind to offer a 50/50 combination on triband and actinic phosphors. 180° internal reflector allows 40% more light output. Actinic White is a high performance upgrade, great for coral, live rock, and related marine life. Actinic White (12000K) = 50% actinic 03 blue phosphors & 50% white spectrum (triband).

Comments: Two actinic and two actinic white vho's have given me execellent hard and soft coral growth in a 75 gallon reef aquarium. With an ice pac ballast I'm getting sufficient light output to run the lamps for close to two years and still get good growth. However if I was growing sps corals I would probably change the lamps more often.

VHO T12 Flourescent Bulbs

Comments: Used the VHO T12 bulbs for 7 years now. Work as advertised for my reef tank of 25ish corals both SPS & LPS in 90 gallon bowfront 30 inches high. My lights are mounted in hood 9 inches above top of tank. Light penetration will reach most LPS corals & Xenia down to the bottom of my tank just fine. These bulbs will support SPS down to about 24 - 30 inches max from bulb mounting location. They will definetely last 12 months. Internal reflector does work. If you do go 12 - 14 months before replacing, I recommend acclimating your corals to new bulbs by installing only half of the bulbs at a time (I use a total of 6) so you don't bleach finicy corals. Heat generated is not a big problem & have never had to replace German EndCaps due to heat. I use with quality ICECAP ballasts. I do use (3) variable speed fans 3" for summer months in Texas July to September as bulbs heat up tank 2-3 additional degrees on average year round. I really like these bulbs and they're cheap comparitevely. They "WILL" support propagate LPS & SPS corals! If you add an AquaSun bulb expect it to brighten all your colors overall for fish & corals, but decrease the metallic colors of corals during day and some at night. Will buy again in future.

Comments: It always amazes me whenever I replace my VHO bulbs, how much brighter and crisper the new lights are! Love them! I have heard the horror stories that some people have from ordering bulbs online and recieving them broken...but after seeing the company's packaging & special "bulb box", I will never have to worry about that from them!

Comments: Not much to say that is new. I have been using these bulbs for 10 years changing them once a year. I use one Actinic White and one Super Actinic for a 150 gal. reef tank. I couple these with 2 MH 15000 bulbs. The tank is doing beautifully--no complaints.
