WHY IS SPECIALIST AQUARIUM
LIGHTING NEEDED?
Light is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength that is visible to the
human eye. The human eye can typically detect wavelengths between
400 nanometres (violet) to 700 nanometres (red). What we consider to
be white light is actually a combination of light at different wavelengths
within this spectrum, with the intensities of the different constituent
wavelengths determining its apparent colour.
As white light is formed by combining
the wavelengths of the visible
spectrum, its appearance can differ
from one source to the next. Colour
temperature is used to describe the
relative appearance of ‘white’ light
sources. The colour temperature of a
lamp is determined by comparing it to
the light given off by a heated ‘black
body radiator’ (similar to heating a
block of iron), the temperature in
Kelvin(K) of the black body radiator at
which it emits light that matches the
hue of the lamp determines the colour temperature. A tungsten lamp
(i.e. a typical household light bulb) will have a colour temperature of
2,800K whilst sunlight is typically 5,700K and scattered blue light
from the sky 10,000K.
By the time it has passed through the earth’s atmosphere the intensity
of sunlight across the wavelengths of the visible spectrum approximates
the curve below.
On a bright sunny day in the tropics the sun will
typically illuminate a surface to 100,000 Lux (Lux is
measure of the intensity of light over a given area).
By comparison a typical fluorescent lamp in an
aquarium will only illuminate objects at the water
surface to 14,000 Lux.
Because of this difference in the levels of light
available for plants and corals in nature to those kept in an aquarium,
specialist lamps are required.

Photosynthesis
The reason most plants have green leaves, is that they contain in their
tissue a green pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is used in a
chemical reaction, which converts water and carbon dioxide (absorbed
from the atmosphere), into glucose, which is then converted into plant
material.
This chemical reaction is normally reliant on sunlight to take place – if
there is insufficient light – which there would be with a normal fluorescent
lamp – then the reaction doesn’t happen, and the plant will die.
Photosynthesis does not utilise the full spectrum
of sunlight, but only two wavebands, or colours,
in the red and blue parts of the spectrum. This
can be seen from the chart right.
A fluorescent lamp is designed to emit light from
Photosynthesis Curve
the phosphor coating on the inside of the glass
tube. Normally these phosphors are selected to
so that the overall effect is to create a warm white light, but by mixing
special phosphors, it is possible to change the spectrum of light emitted
by the lamp. Selecting phosphors that produce light in the specific
wavelengths required for photosynthesis, it is possible to produce a
fluorescent lamp that is far more efficient at sustaining plant growth.
Thus, although the lamp produces only a sixth of the brightness of
sunlight, as far as the plant is concerned, it is far closer to sunlight
levels, because the output is in the photosynthetic wavebands.
Marine Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis occurs in both freshwater and marine aquariums, and so
specialist light sources are required in both. However, in marine
aquariums, the salt water absorbs light in the red part of the spectrum
(see graph below), so invertebrates have evolved to utilise light at the
blue end of the spectrum. Thus, specialist marine light sources with
spectral intensities concentrated in the blue part of the spectrum are
required to sustain marine life.

Chlorophyll Synthesis
Original Tropical Lamp
Freshwater Lamp
The Original Tropical Lamp is
designed specifically to bring out
the red and blue peaks of natural
daylight that are necessary for
photosynthesis. It helps to release
oxygen as a by-product, promotes
plant growth and helps to form
carbohydrates, the basic food for
all living organisms.
The Fresh Water Lamp has been
specially formulated to combine a
uniquely created colour
temperature, peaking in the green
part of the spectrum. It also
provides superb colour rendition,
enhancing all the natural colours
to be found within typical
freshwater aquaria.
• Accentuates reds and blues
• Promotes plant growth
• Optimum light for
photosynthesis
• Shows the rich greens of plants
• Encourages plant growth
• Brightens natural colours in fish

T5 Plant Pro Lamp
Metal Halide Lamp
The T5 Plant Pro lamp has been
specifically formulated to combine
the red and blue spectral peaks of
the original tropical lamp to
support plant photosynthesis,
with the higher light output of
the freshwater lamp. The result is
a lamp which is noticeably
brighter than the original tropical,
making it ideal for more
demanding plant species.
Metal Halide Lamps provide
extremely high light levels from a
compact source. The design of the
lamp means that the light is
emitted from a single point, which
creates a rippling effect through
the water that is impossible to
achieve with fluorescent lamps.
• Superior Plant growth
• Enhance colours of fish
and plants
• Satisfy plant species with a
higher light requirement –
e.g. Lilleopsis
• 5,200K colour temperature
mimics normal sunlight
• Excellent colour rendering
• High light levels promote
healthy plant growth
LIGHTING FOR MARINE AQUARIUMS

Marine White 14,000K Lamps
Marine Blue 420 Actinic Lamps
The colour temperature and
spectrum of the Marine White
14,000K Lamp, coupled with its
high lumen output (particularly for
the T5 lamps) replicates the
intensity of the sun around
shallow coral reefs.
The Marine Blue 420nm Actinic
lamp re-creates the effect of a
moonlit ocean and brings out corals
natural fluorescence. Unlike many
competing products the Marine
Blue Lamp peaks at 420nm, the
optimum point in the spectrum for
marine photosynthesis.

lamp this replicates the natural exposure of the fish to the UVA and
UVB in daylight, allowing them to develop a richer colour than they
would under normal artificial lighting.
• UVA Transmissive lamp tube
• High performance co-extruded reflector
built in to tube
• Remote ballast box

REFLECTORS
When a fluorescent tube is ignited, light is given off
evenly in every direction, much of which is directed
upwards into the lid of the aquarium.
If a reflector is mounted behind the tube, this stray
light is not wasted, but redirected back to where it
is required – the aquarium, so that the efficiency of
the tube is maximised.
• Reflector can be angled to direct the light into
the aquarium or terrarium
• Maximises the light in your tank
• Made from a sturdy aluminium design
• Available in lengths compatible with 6W to
58W lamps
• Optimised reflector models for T8 (1”)
and T5 (5/8”) lamps
• Resistant to salt water corrosion
