Zoo Med 18 Inch Ocean Sun Flourescent Bulb (T8 STD Output) Information

Improve the overall appearance of your aquarium, and provide your fish with an environment that mimics their natural habitats, simply by installing the Zoo Med 18 Inch Ocean Sun Fluorescent Bulb from Pet Store. This is essentially a T8 lamp, which is meant to give your tank somewhat of an oceanic feel by manipulating the radiance of the product’s lighting. It is definitely an ideal tool to use on all types of tanks, whether fresh or saltwater. This is mostly utilized for the effect of casual lighting.

As its name says, this product measures precisely at eighteen inches in length, making it suitable for regular-sized aquariums. It is primarily used to create a daytime effect within a controlled environment, allowing you to establish a schedule that your fish can follow for breeding and proliferation. You can also pair this with some actinic phosphors to produce a day-to-night cycle, which will enable your friends to do the activities that they mostly do in the dark.

The Zoo Med 18 Inch Ocean Sun Fluorescent Bulb is easy to install, provide that you have the right fixture for it. Nevertheless, you will be pleased with the results that this will give you. Best of all, you will be glad to see how happy your fish will be under this new environment.

The Ocean Sun is a 10,000k high intensity lamp which creates a beautiful "deep ocean" effect in your marine or freshwater aquarium. This emission spectrum, strong in the blue regions, supports the photo biological processes of marine algae and freshwater plants. Ocean Sun promotes the growth of zooxanthellae algae, essential for the growth and well being of all photosynthetic corals and invertebrates. Ideal for all marine aquariums, and freshwater aquariums where a deep water effect is desired. Zoo Med`s line of fluorescent aquarium lamps are made in Europe for ultra high quality, color, and longer burn life. Our energy saving T-8 sizes can save you up to $30.00 per year in electricity over the thicker T-12 size lamps! Effective up to 10,000 hours.

Comments: I bought these bulbs for my 50-gallon planted tank because I couldn't find anything locally other than really terrible lighting that was supposed to be full spectrum but the light was actually purple which made the fish drab and the plants gray. Those bulbs were made in China. The Ocean Sun bulbs are made in Germany and are so superior to anything I've seen. My plants and fish are thriving and everything in the tank really pops. I'm happy, my plants are happy, and my fish are very happy. Thanks for making such a great recommendation!
