Interpet Daylight Plus Fluorescent Tubes??
Hi Chaps
Any one heard of these?? Interpet Daylight Plus Fluorescent Tubes
It says on the box "Supplies light requirements for a broader range of plants and corals. Simulates tropical sunlight conditions. High 3180 lumen output for bright daylight effect."
Someone is selling boxes of 10 for $40, they are 26mm T8s
My intended use would be 5 tubes, for a 180g FOWLR aquarium....
Can anyone advise as to the suitability of these lights for my application??
Thanks in advance

Can you get a pic of these or a link? also what's the kelvin of the bulb? 20,000k?

The way it sounds, i don't think i'd use them, but more info would be better for me to get a better grasp on things.

Here's a link to a Interpet stockist...
Aquatics Online Catalogue : Interpet Aquarium Lamps
This is what they say about them...
Interpet Marine Reflector Lamps
Daylight Reflector Lamp

Reflector technology provides 30%+ more light

10,000 K Reef lamp

Promotes the growth of corals and plants

High intensity 10,000 Kelvin reflector lamp, with a spectrum ideally suited to aid the growth of essential zooxanthellae required for healthy corals

The internal reflectors built into the lamps ensure all the light is focussed downwards into the aquarium, thus negating the need for an additional reflector

The Marine reflector lamp will also enhance the colours of marine fish and invertebrates.

Perfect for use with the Moonlight lamp, to provide a great appearance for any marine reef aquarium"

It looks as though they are normal output lights with a little bit more juice in them. I personally wouldn't use them and don't recommend you use them either. IMHO it'd be a waste of money.
