    • Waterproof to IP67
    • Complies with the new European Aquarium Safety Lighting Standard
  • The LED Blade has design and light output at its forefront, the ultra sleek anodised aluminium case with a profile of just 8mm it has been designed to provide as close to an invisible light source as possible, whilst doubling up its function as a heat sink for the high power LED’s.

    High Lumen per Watt.

    Low carbon footprint.

  • Traditional T8 end caps for direct replacement of Fluorescent Lamps. Low energy consumption reducing costs (5x efficiency compared to fluorescent equivalent). Lasting 2x longer, reducing the need for lamp replacement. Reduces consumption to one third of the fluorescent equivalent. Waterproof IP67. Use Magnetic Ballast with a starter. (Not for use with an Electronic Ballast).

  • 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 fluorescence.
    • Spectral peak at 420nm to fluoresce corals
    • Promotes marine photosynthesis
    • Moonlight effect ideal for night-time viewing
    The Arcadia Marine Blue Actinic lamp range has been created to provide the specific spectrum (400 – 480nm) necessary to achieve the blue chlorophyll absorption for zooxanthellae symbiosis to develop. This concentration of light energy in the so called ‘actinic’ range peaking at 420nm, is essential for the survival and good health of fish, corals and invertebrates in marine aquariums. Another important element of the Arcadia Marine Blue Actinic lamp is the UV output present, which creates a very pleasant fluorescent effect on corals, invertebrates and exotic marine fish. When used at night with no other lamps, the effect is of a dark moonlit night with the vivid colours of the corals and invertebrates fluorescing brilliantly.
  • Extra high output

    • Increased fluorescence
    • Enhanced "Reef" effect
    • Deep water look
     
  • Actinic white lamp that enhances blue and violet marine colours.
    • 60% Marine White 14,000K / 40% Marine Blue 420nm
    • Actinic white lamp that enhances blue and violet marine colours
    • High photosynthetic light content
    The Marine Hybrid is a new T5 lamp formulation based on a 60/40 phosphor mix of our Marine White 14K and Marine Blue 420nm lamps. The resultant spectrum of the lamp combines high brightness, with large amounts of energy in the photosynthetic wavelengths required for coral growth. With a strong actinic peak to fluoresce corals, the Marine Hybrid lamp emphasises blue and violet colours in the aquarium, without flattening reds and greens, giving a natural reef appearance. For smaller aquariums the Hybrid lamp works well on its own or combined with the Marine white lamp, while in larger T5 lamp arrays, a mix of Arcadia Marine Blue, Marine Hybrid and Marine White lamps will produce excellent results.
  • Extra high output

    • Accentuates reds and blues
    • Promotes SPS Coral growth
    • Use as part of a multi T5 lamp systems
     
  • Extra high output

    • Increases SPS coral colouration
    • Does not increase algae growth
    • For an enhanced Reef effect
  • 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.
    • Powerful penetrating white light
    • Accentuates natural fish colours
    • Colour replicates reef environment
    • Promotes marine photosynthesis
    • Ideal for lighting African Lake tanks
    The Arcadia Marine White lamp has a colour temperature of 14,000K (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.
  • Designed specifically around the red and blue wavelengths in daylight that are necessary for photosynthesis. This gives a warm pink light that encourages plant growth and highlights the iridescence of many tropical fish.
    • Warm tropical colour
    • Accentuates reds and blues
    • Optimum light for photosynthesis
    • Promotes plant growth
     
  • 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.
    • Ideal for growing more demanding aquatic plants
    • Bright penetrating light, ideal for even deeper aquariums
    • Enhance colours of fish and plant
    • Satisfy plant species with a higher light requirement
  • Double your output with our fluorescent lamp 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
    • Made from a sturdy aluminium design
    • Available in all lengths from 8W to the 58W
    • Optimised reflector models for T8 (1”) and T5 (5/8”) lamps

    The Benefits of using reflectors

    Fluorescent lamps are cylindrical in design, this means that light is produced all around the tube and down the length of the lamp. By using the correct reflector, you effectively capture all of the light that is produced from the top and the sides of the lamp. This could be as much as two-thirds of its total output. This light will otherwise be effectively wasted to reflection around the aquarium.
