Reef Spec T5-Actinic 22000k- 24W:
Renowned for their expertise in aquatic equipment, Red Sea’s range of aquarium lighting makes the very best of your marine life. Corals such as Acropora, Montiopora and Seriatopora all benefit from this superior light source.
Corals thrive under the correct colour temperature spectrum. The high colour temperature of the Red Sea T5 lamp promotes healthy development and enhances the natural fluorescence of the corals. This is because the lamps promote the natural process of photosynthesis for lush growth.
Red Sea’s range of lamps are also great for showing off all of your marine life perfectly. T5 lamps are slimmer and more compact, whilst out performing their traditional T8 counterparts.
Long lasting and superior quality, these lamps work excellently alongside the Red Sea aquarium range or used in other fish tank collections.
Most corals are photosynthetic and approximately 85% of the energy required for their growth and coloration is provided through the symbiotic relationship they share with the zooxanthellae algae which live within the coral. In order to facilitate the development of the zooxanthellae, it is essential to provide not only the rightintensity of lighting (approx. 1w/liter for T5 fluorescents provides optimal photosynthetic irradiation spectrum – PAR), but to ensure also that the lighting provides the correct color spectrum for corals.
Red Sea’s new T5 REEF SPEC Lighting range is the result of extensive testing into the needs of corals within a reef aquarium environment. This high quality German-made lighting is proven to provide the intensity and color spectrum required by even the most demanding coral species, commonly known as Small Polyp Stony Corals (SPS). These corals include such species as Acropora, Montioporaand Seriatoporaand have far more exacting requirements for lighting than soft corals.
Using a combination of Red Sea’s T5 REEF SPEC fluorescent tubes will not only create a pleasing, natural,visual effect but will also promote coral growth and fluorescence without encouraging the development of undesired algae.
