Aquatic Life Dual-Lamp T5 HO Aquarium Light Fixtures

The Aquatic Life Dual-Lamp T5 HO (High-Output) Fluorescent aquarium light fixtures employ the latest leading edge technology for both the novice and experienced hobbyist. Included hardware allows up to three fixtures to be easily ‘linked’ together to create a 4-Lamp or 6-Lamp aquarium light fixture. The Marine lighting system features a combination of 700+nm/10,000K and 420/460nm Actinic lamps to promote exceptional growth and color in Corals and Invertebrates, as well as eye-popping vivid colors of fishes. The Freshwater lighting system features a combination of 6000K Daylight and 650nm Roseate lamps, which when used together create a balanced light output, including peaks in the blue and red spectrum that matches the chlorophyll absorption peaks in plants, and at the same time enhances fish coloration.

After having this for a few weeks and trying to grow some plants I found out the bulbs on this are just not quite up to snuff . I dumped the bulbs in favor of 2x 6700k bulbs and saw a noticable improvment in plant growth . Plus the Red "rosetta" buld just gives off a not so bight red hue , so I suggest at least dumping the rosetta bulb and getting a 54 watt coralife 6700k available here on amazon , better yet 2x 6700k

I recieved this and was a little leery seeing it has no reviews yet, and I been burned on buying a cheeper light that did not last even a week, but I took a chance and it paid off . The light is very bright with out being over powering . I am running a 55 gallon setup and it lights the bottom very well . It comes with 2 bulbs a 6000 k and a red plant bulb . Not entirly sold on the red bulb but its not bad . The housing is all aluminum with the ends being hard plastic . The switch is well made and has a good solid feel to it . The protective lens cover is plexiglass . I like how well made it is , it is fairly easy to change the bulbs , just take out 2 screws on the non switch end, slide out the plexiglass , and you have easy access to the bulbs . Sockets are of high quality , and easy to work with .
I realy like the reflectors high polished mirror like reflectors do a outstanding job of directing the light down. All in all the light is very heavy unlike a few of the other fixtures I had that were light . This makes me suspect that I have better quality here as a good quality ballest it not light in weight .
The light takes standard 48" HO bulbs so my next buld change I will probaly go with some 6700k bulbs.

Their are a few cons to this setup .

I bought one of these from my local fish store for my 75 gallon planted aquarium. I also have a 36inch on my 46 gallon tank. I like the lights. They don't get too hot for a unit without a fan. They don't buzz or flicker, and the reflectors are of good quality. I bought two more from amazon to add to my 75 gallon for a total of three lights. They mount together very easily. The instructions say not to use them under a canopy, but I do anyway, it has an open back and enough space between its top and the light to allow air flow. I did end up taking the lid off the canopy because my tank was running a few degrees warmer than usual because of it. I would highly recommend using these lights for your planted tank. With the right bulbs your plants will thrive and grow. The lights are tough, I dropped one, it stopped working, but was able to fix it by pushing the light holder mounts back in place and tightening the screw back. I was worried for bit, but the bulbs didn't break, and the light took no damage.

I purchased this light after having a terrible time with Zoo Med AquaSun T5-HO Double Light Linear Fluorescent Hood, 48-Inch

This light is very well made for the price. And comes with bulbs. 1 6000k and a Rosette for plants. 6000k may not be sufficient for some aquariums so bumping up to 6700k+ shouldn't be difficult considering this takes 48" bulbs.

Pros - Doesn't feel cheap.
- Plexiglass protector is sturdy.
- Long power cord.

Cons - Only one switch to control both lights.
- The lamp seems to run a little warm.

For the money this is a great hood. And I recommend it over the Zoo med AquaSun T5-HO light.

No problems - fast shipping, great item. Plants grow like crazy in my 55g aquarium (although perhaps will have to change the lamps for the ones with the right spectrum)..

I've had these lights for over a month and they have been perfect, exactly the amount of light I was looking for (90 gallon, slightly planted, freshwater).

I had no problems with the shipping and they don't seem to get overly hot (warm, but certainly not excessive). I would certainly buy again.

This is the second one that I have bought. I am sorry that they discontinued this model, because it is a good lamp, reasonably priced. The new model with a digital timer means just something else to break. I happen to like putting on and shutting off the lamps so that I am checking my fish the first thing in the morning and when I shut the lights off.

Semi-easy to install. I had an issue with the fixture at first, so I contacted the manufacturer. They sent a new one, and I have had no problems since. I also upgraded to the 6700K bulb. Works great!

I love the fact that if this isn't enough light for my 75g planted tank I can get another one and make them one big light. So far, this light is growing plants perfectly.
