Gives the appearance of a tropical reef!

The 30K Halides bulb is ideal for creating a more natural lighting effect in your aquarium. Imitating the actions of the sun by providing light from a single focus point, the Halide bulbs enable light to be more intensely focused and as such provide a natural “ripple effect” much in the same way that natural sunlight does.

This 30K Halide bulb will produce  a “clinical” blue tone as well as highlight the vibrancy of blue and green hues in your coral and plants. If you would like to enjoy the look of a tropical reef in your own home, then this is the bulb for you! This low-cost, high performance 30K Halides bulb is 150W and your aquarium will benefit from not only its rich spectrum but also its ingenious imitation of natural lighting conditions.

Why choose Halides and what else should I know? Why Halides?

Halide bulbs offer the ultimate in quality and performance at a low price. A 250W Halide bulb will give you the “ripple” effect and can reach right down to the deepest section of your tank and benefit all of the plants and corals within.
