24W – 550mm/22” (length) – 5/8”- 16 mm (diameter)

A hint of pink to enhance natural colours!

This T5 is perfect for enhancing colours and offers deeper penetration…right to the bottom your tank. Because this T5 is specially formulated to enhance blue and red peaks, what you get is a light which resembles natural daylight as closely as possible which is an ideal situation for encouraging photosynthesis. The Tropical T5 will give your tank the warm, pinkish appearance of a tropical environment and will also create the ideal circumstances for plants with a higher light dependence. You’ll be able to increase stocks without worrying about a lack of light.

What else do I need to know?

High output T5’s are superior to T8’s thanks to their increased water penetration and super-efficient design. Your tank will benefit in multiple areas and because of the increased penetration there’s no need to worry about inadequate light levels even if you do add more stock.

T5 tropical and 50/50 – Review by Craig (Posted on 15/04/2016)
Excellent bulbs. Bought these to replace what was already in my tank. The colours are much more vivid and the plants have responded already after being installed only 1 week. Lots of pearling and the fish colours have also improved. I will certainly be buying these again when they need replacing.

The wrong tubes were delivered in excellent packaging. Contacted iQuatics via their website in the evening, received a call from them the next morning. They agreed to send the right ones by next day delivery and have the wrong ones collected. Received correct ones the next day and very happy with the product and again packaging was excellent. Great service.

Posted by Keith on Tuesday, 27 September 2011


Does your buy 2 get one free offer on bulbs only work with the same bulbs? eg if I buy 1 blue + and one 14k can I get another bulb free or do I have to buy 2 of the same bulbs for the third?

    You can mix and match the t5 tubes and still take advantage of the Buy 2 get 1 free offer. The cheapest tube will be the free one.
