Marine White 15watt 450mm (18)-Superb light output -Powerful penetrating white light -Accentuates natural fish colours -Colour replicates reef environment The intensity of the sun around coral reefs is very high. To attempt to replicate this intensity with fluorescent tubes it is necessary to achieve the highest lumen output and the correct spectrum. Many white lamps are unable to provide the necessary levels of light output combined with the correct colour to really enhance and enliven the appearance of the marine aquarium. The Arcadia Marine White lamp has a colour temperature of 9 500K (Kelvin) and an exceptional lumen output combined with very good colour rendition. The tri-phosphor formulation provides consistent long life and stability of output at these high levels of performance. These factors make it the ideal choice for the serious marine aquarist with excellent levels of light throughout the aquarium and extraordinary clarity for viewing the constantly changing marine environment. A high proportion of light energy is concentrated in the area between 400 and 480nm which also assists in the promotion of zooxanthellae production to encourage coral and invertebrate growth. The other peaks across the spectrum allow the true vibrant and natural colours of the fish corals and invertebrates to be enhanced and to really stand out. To really achieve the best results for marine aquariums we recommend the combination of Arcadia Marine White and Marine Blue Actinic lamps.This will provide the benefits of excellent light output levels coupled with the correctspectrum to support symbiotic algae allowing good growth of the corals and invertebrates whilst greatly improving the overall lighting and appearance of the aquarium with fluorescent effects as well.
Arcadia are the lighting experts for aquariums, birds and reptiles and have introduced the Classica range to offer an economical alternative range.of three fluorescent tubes.The Ocean Moonlight lamp provides a cool blue light ideal for night-time viewing and recreating marine lighting conditions. The colour of the lamp emphasises rich blues and greens or aquarium ornaments and plants and can be combined with the Natural Sunlight or Tropical Daylight lamps to striking effect.8W - 300mm / 12IN Long, 16mm / 5/8IN Diameter
