New this Week, 3/30/11

AquaticLife 18" 18-Watt T5HO Bulbs
We've got three new 18" bulbs in from AquaticLife this week. The 420/460 bulb features an actinic phosphor that produces a peaked wavelength at 420 nm that benefits most coral. The phosphor also produces a wavelength at 460 nm for an increased blue hue that enhances fish color. The 6000K variation is ideal for freshwater planted tanks and refugiums. The balanced light peaks in the blue and red spectrums to help chlorophyll adsorption in plants and enhance fish color. The roseate bulb is also a great choice for freshwater tanks with aquatic plants. These bulbs range from $17.99 to $19.99 apiece.
