Pendant Lighting


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.

Available lamps

Metal halide is commonly accepted as the best substitute for nature when it comes to aquarium lighting. The exceptionally high light output when compared to other lamp types such as fluorescent tubes, makes them a very effective light source, particularly for the larger tank set-up.

Commonly used in marine aquariums, they can also be a very useful asset in freshwater tanks – particular those where good plant growth is desired.
