T5 Fluorescent Tubes follow a similar principle to T8 Fluorescent Tubes, requiring an electronic controller (ballast) to power them. T5 Fluorescent Tubes are smaller in diameter, however they are more powerful, providing brighter light that can penetrate deeper aquariums.
T5 Fluorescent Tubes are ideal for both planted and reef aquariums, where multiple tubes can be installed that cater for different spectrum, for example reef aquariums should have both white and actinic tubes to cater for the full lighting spectrum
Aquacadabra Tip: Both T8 and T5 Fluorescent Tubes fade over time, and it often difficult to spot until you replace a tube. Fluorescent Tubes should be replaced every 12 months to ensure you're providing sufficient lighting for your livestock, particularly if you're stocking corals.
At Aquacadabra, we have a huge range of T5 lighting, including products Arcadia, Giesemann, Juwel and Red Sea, which are suitable for both freshwater and marine applications.
