Product Information

The T8 LED Tropical Lamp is a new and exciting initiative from Arcadia. The light strip has the added benefit of fitting easily into a standard T8 fluorescent lamp fitting, so no need to buy a new unit or hood.

Using a combination of blue, red and green LEDs, this LED light strip creates a warm light that picks out and highlights the red colours often found in a tropical tank. It also works to show off the other beautiful colours of an exotic aquarium. As the tubes can turn 300 degrees, you can angle the light to your preferred direction, and as they are glass free, there is no danger of smashing or cracking.

The colour temperature is high, running at 10,700K (Kelvin), this works to illuminate the colours but also to encourage the natural process of photosynthesis, for healthy plant growth. The light casts a ripple effect upon the water, which is often found in the ocean as light plays upon the water.

This Tropical Lamp also offers 5 times more light per kilowatt hour than other light sources, as well as using 1/3 of the electricity of other lamps. It has an A* energy rating which confirms you will save both money and energy.

This lamp will click straight into an existing magnetic T8 ballast, so you can upgrade your lighting without the cost and inconvenience of a new hood.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE LAMPS ONLY WORK WITH A MAGNETIC BALLAST ONLY -THEY WILL NOT WORK WITH AN ELECTRONIC BALLAST AND AS SUCH ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE JUWEL OR FLUVAL RANGE OF AQUARIUMS.

Key Features:

  • Fits in to standard T8 light hood
  • 10,700K colour temperature
  • Enhances warm reds and cool blue colours
  • Creates ripple effect
  • Promotes photosynthesis
  • 5 x more light per kilowatt hour than other light forms
  • Energy efficient - uses only 1/3 of electricity than standard

    Despite issues with my controller unit, I am very happy with these units apart from the brightness, which could be higher, however I have used one led strip with one flourescent until the fish acclimatise to the new light level. The new colour emitted by the led is great for highlighting the individual colours of fish and plants.

    Would be great in a very low light tank or as a night light. Really accentuated the reds in the tank but was way too dark to be a direct replacement for the T8 powerglo that came as stock.

    Thou Swell uk were superb. the item I ordered was far dimmer than I expected. Not impressed with Arcadia. recommend you buy the daylight tubes as they may be brighter than the Poxy tropical ones...what a waste of money.

    Item was faulty.
    Were quite a bit dimmer than I had expected
    One of the sides of the lights has come away to expose the inside of the light.
    Being inside an aquarium hood in a sealed environment water will get in and the components will eventually rust.

    First one I ordered didn't work, second one I received as a replacement also didn't work. Not going to wait around to see if the third item does.
