You may think that aquariums can just do fine with a regular fluorescent light or an all-purpose bulb - if you are a novice to aquariums.
Enthusiasts and experts alike agree that using non-specialized lighting is not advisable. Ordinary lighting usually gives off a lot of heat, and this can affect the temperature of the water in your aquarium. You don't want that to happen, because the water in your aquarium should maintain temperature levels that are suitable for the fish, corals and plants
If you can't use ordinary fluorescent lights and incandescent bulbs, what should you use? Here is where the UVL T12 VHO Super Actinic Bulb from Pet Store
comes in. This bulb is specifically made for aquariums. It has its blue spectrum at 100%, so the light it gives off has a bluish tint. It's not too hot and doesn't burn out easily. It also brings out the vibrancy and vividness of your fish's and corals' colors, making them look even more beautiful than they already are. If your aquarium is also doubling as a display piece, this is surely welcome news to your ears.
At 110 watts, the UVL T12 VHO eats up only a small amount of electricity, so your aquarium can enjoy the benefits without you worrying about your electric bills.
