Its light intensity is similar to that of natural sunlight, while removing the excess heat that might endanger your marine animals. It is along-lasting lamp, and it can burn for a maximum of 10000 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!
