T5 lighting are fluorescent tubes that are slimmer and more efficient than the older T8 tubes.
The T5 is 40% smaller in size, so can physically fit in more in the same space. It has a better light spectrum, greater brightness and has reduced power consumption. It can save around 30% energy compared to the T8 and can last up to 25% longer. There are also reduced mercury levels in the lamps.
T5 lamps offer a great performance whatever type of tank you have, whether tropical or fresh water. Daylight and coloured tubes enhance the natural beauty of your fish, corals and plants. We have a wide range available from a myriad of leading manufacturers such as Juwel, Arcadia and Red Sea.
