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

Are you thinking of putting up for lights for your aquarium?

This type of lamp is designed to simulate sunlight and can give a positive effect on all the creatures living in your aquarium, whether it contains saltwater or freshwater. For a dependable brand of daylight lamp, look for Zoo Med 18 Inch Tropic Sun Flourescent Bulb (T8 Std Output) Pet Store.

The bulb can mimic the effect of the sun not only to make people see the beauty of your aquarium plants and animals, but also make sure that photosynthesis and necessary oxygen production occurs inside the tank.

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!
