What’s the four kinds of lighting used as aquarium lighting

Under the irradiation of the soft light, the beauty of the body color the tropical fish shows and subtle changes make us dazzled. Fish and other water plants can grow up healthy, adequate light is one of the prerequisites,we will discuss about the essential equipment of the Aquarium – lighting equipment.

Fluorescent: Fluorescent lighting is widely used as the tank lighting, largely because of its low price, less heat, light distribution; according to different needs ,it can also be designed as red, blue, and other kinds of colored lights. The downside is that the lamp life is short, six months later the half light intensity is reduced, it usually would need to be replaced after a year.

MH: the metal halide is of high brightness, penetration, good color, closest to the sunlight, it is appropriate for the growth of aquatic plants. But metal halide heat, high temperature, so the height is best 40cm above the water , so there is more good cooling effect. Metal halide lamps used in breeding plants is most popular, but more expensive.

Germicidal lamp: also known as UV germicidal lamp, taking advantage of the ultraviolet the lamps emit is to kill fungi and algae spores floating in the water. Some of the UV light is installed in the external cartridge but also a separate UV light.

LED lights: LED lights are beginning to be used as the aquarium lighting fixtures in recent years, , and a popular trend. A complete LED lamp such as the LED tube light T8 includes a lighthouse and LED light-emitting diode lamp group placed inside the lighthouse. LED lamps are of energy saving, low power consumption, less heat, small size, easy installation, long life and other advantages, the disadvantage is higher prices.

Nowadays,the LED floodlight and LED tube light are the most widely used as the representatives of the decorative lighting  and the home lighting in daily life,the LED tube light enjoys a great popularity in our corridor, restaurants, shopping, leisure and entertainment, galleries, exhibition halls and other indoor environments everywhere, the LED floodlight is mainly used in city squares, parks, stadiums, the facades of large commercial buildings and hotel, stage, waiting rooms, airports etc. where the higher brightness is needed to illuminate,meanwhile,there a large number of factory engaging in developing and producing the LED light,Lead Lighting is just one of them,which adopts high brightness SMD as the light source of the LED tube and highly integrated and high brightness COB as the light source of the LED flood lights so that fully guaranteed stable and soft light of the LED tube light and octahedron breadth and brightness irradiation range of the LED flood light, while  low voltage constant current driver ensure the AC can be converted into the DC to improve energy efficiency of the LED tube light and LED floodlight and reduce the waste heat energy and stroboscopic effect exciting the human eye, the most important is that the LED lighting without adding mercury and other heavy metals harmful to our body and pollution the environment, that’s why the LED light is Known as energy-saving and environmental protection. Login http://www.ledclan.com to learn more features and uses of the LED tubelight and surf www.lead-lighting.com  to know more awesome LED floodlight and other LED lighting.
