Over 30 Years of Innovation. Started in 1977 by 19 year old Gary Bagnall and college friend Mark Lemke, ZooMed started as a reptile company out of a one car garage located in Costa Mesa, California. It has evolved into a company that introduced the first American reptile vitamin in 1982 and never looked back! Today the company holds 3 reptile product patents with 3 more pending. Zoo Med`s greatest accomplishment has been the invention of UVB lighting for reptiles, which took place in 1993 and became the standard the world over for Zoos, Veterinarians and the reptile hobbyist.

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!
