Metal halide bulbs are popular choices for aquarium lighting. Compared to other aquarium lamps
, metal halide bulbs produce light that best matches the light coming from the sun.
But even metal halide bulbs need a boost to make sure that their power is maximized. This is where reflectors come in. Instead of putting up more bulbs (which can hike up your electricity bills), you can put up reflectors instead to give your current metal halide bulbs a bigger coverage area.
A good reflector to use is the Spiderlight Reflector with Mogul Socket and Bracket from Pet Store
. This reflector is specifically designed to help you get the most out of metal halide lamps. It removes the problem of light re-striking the lamp. Without this reflector, or by using a poorly designed reflector, light coming from a lamp strikes back to the lamp, causing heat to rise. But with the Spiderlight Reflector with Mogul Socket and Bracket, light doesn`t strike back on the lamp, so the tube doesn`t get too heated. This makes the tube last longer. It also makes the light disperse over the tank smoothly and uniformly.
Each kit of Spiderlight Reflector with Mogul Socket and Bracket contains the reflector, the mogul socket and the bracket. The whole kit can be used with lamps with mogul bases and with metal halide lamps with standard ballasts.
Reflector includes Mogul Socket and Mounting Bracket.

The nature of the design will allow the typical hobbiest with a six foot tank to burn two
lamps and get uniform light distribution over the entire length of the aquarium. The reflector kit includes the reflector, bracket and mogul socket. This system is compatible with any standard Metal Halide ballast and lamp with a mogul base.
