UVL T5 V-HOR AquaSun (50% Triband Blue 50% Triband White) Information



Part #: F24/AQ

Allow your fish to swim around a beautifully illuminated aquarium with the UVL 22 Inch T5 V-HO Aquasun Bulb from Pet Store. This is a type of marine lighting, which has been especially manufactured to create a sense of nature inside the tank. It is quite energy-efficient, limited to consuming only 24 to 40 watts of power for the whole duration that it is switched on. While the product doesnt come with its own fixture, you will find that it is easy to locate a casing that can accommodate the size of this lamp.

Measuring with a length of 22 inches, this bulb is especially fitted for regular-sized aquariums. It is mainly employed for casual lighting because of its 10,000K color rating. Nevertheless, it stands above the other brands because of its use of triple phosphors, giving you a combination of three pigments to create a solid beam that is unlike any other, in terms of appearance. These multiple tints enable you to release a shade that is perfect for all times of the day.

With the UVL 22 Inch T5 V-HO Aquasun Bulb, you are guaranteed that your fish are enjoying a home that is equipped with a radiance, which makes them feel more comfortable and at home. Plus, the unique color combinations help promote the stunning features of your fish that you havent even seen before.

UVL 46 Inch T5 V-HO AquaSun Bu Product Review by Robbie (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Unsatisfactory

Comments: Such a terrible color! Everything seems to Flourish Beautifully, however the color is a reddish color. If you arent concerned about the color, and only concerned in what it does its perfect.

Comments: Very strong pink-purple cast. That's OK if you want it though. But kind of artificial looking. I'm thinking one would be good, to bring out some of the redder colors in the livestock, but mostly use crisp, real blue-white bulbs.

Light is pink Product Review by PIPER KEAIRNES (Posted on 2/19/10)

Below Average

Comments: The AquaSun bulb looks pink next to my other bulbs and produces an overall pink color cast to the entire tank.

In this picture (http://pkeairnes.smugmug.com/Other/Misc/P1010341/792024018_8NWcC-L.jpg), from left to right, the bulbs are:

D-D Giesemann AquaBlue+ (looks white)
UVL AquaSun (looks pink)
UVL Super Actinic 420nm (looks blue)
D-D Giesemann AquaBlue+ (looks white)

The light assembly is a Current SunDial 30". The original assembly had two 10K and two Actinic, which produces a color of white with a hint of blue. The first thing my kids said when they saw the new lighting was "Why is the aquarium pink?" Not exactly what I was going for. The UVL AquaSun is not a 10K white and will need to be replaced.

You apparently need more than 1 Super Actinic to balance out the pink in the AquaSun.

Excellent!

Comments: I like these bulbs because of the price, quality, and best of all they are Made in the USA and not in China like many competitors' bulbs.
