Double ended | RX7 ends/base
Halide lamps are required as the best source of artificial sunlight which most accurately and efficiently replicates natural sunlight conditions giving the natural ingredients for a healthy tank.
Halides are a compact source of light which emit the high output light from a single focus point just like the natural sun itself, thus successfully reproduces the natural ripple effect of sunlight.
This rippling effect isn’t possible with t5 lighting as the light is coming from a more spread source.
Double ended- Aquarium metal halide. Rx7 ends/base.
With slightly more blue in the spectrum than the 10000K halide, this contributes to a healthy setup.
This is the closest replica to shallows reef conditions.
Not only is it necessary for growth, it also makes a more enjoyable viewing pleasure. Why Halides ?
The ideal depth of tank that you should use 70w halides with is a maximum of 18inches. If your tank is any deeper than this you should consider increasing to 150w for deeper penetration. 70w Halides are ideal for use on a nano reef aquarium.
Ideally you would use an Actinic or Blue Plus fluorescent tube alongside this tube to reduce the yellow hue given from a halide with this colour temperature.

- Thumbs up – Review by Chris (Posted on 09/11/2015)
- I have one of these on an 8 gallon Nano cube, which is connected to a 27 gallon sump. I am very happy with the color and brightness of the bulb. Shipping was fast to the US as well.
- Really pleased – Review by Brian James (Posted on 21/05/2012)
- I brought the iQuatics 14k 70w halide bulb after a recommendation from a friend. I have always been a great believer in "you get what you pay for" but this isn't the case with the iQuatics bulb. Well packaged and does exactly what it's supposed to. I'm converted !

Could you advise which light to use on an aqua reef 200 .10000k or 14000k I only have softies. I donâ€™t mind a white light, I like blue. I donâ€™t like to see a yellow shade?
Posted byon Tuesday, 27 September 2011If you don’t like a yellow shade, I would recommend you compensate the white tubes with a blue plus tube for added penetration. Either of the 10k or 14k will be ideal for your setup.
