Aqua One Tropical LED Tube 9w 60cm T8
Fluorescent T8 aquarium tubes are commonly rated at 6000 – 10000 hours of life, however, they suffer significant output loss and spectrum shift after around 3000 hours. This means an aquarium fluorescent tube needs to be replaced approximately every 12 months. Aqua One T8 LED Tubes are rated at 50000 hours with minimal output loss and spectrum shift, meaning they do not need to be replaced for many years. In most cases, they will last up to 5 times longer than conventional fluorescent tubes.

Hints & Tips:• Aquarium lighting is an essential part of the aquarium set up and the life of your fish and plants. Use a light timer to help turn on the aquarium light in the morning and turn it off in the evening to replicate day and night cycles. Most species of fish need light for approximately 10-12 hours a day.
