Currently using Juwel T5 tubes? Our bulbs are 100% compatible with Juwel® units. This tube can be used on 55cm and 60cmlight units.  The following aquariums can be fitted with this tube:  The following aquariums can be fitted with this tube:

Rio 240, Rio 300, Vision 260. These T5's are also compatible with the Aquatlantis range of T5 Lighting.

High Output T5’s are better to use in your aquarium lighting than the regular T8 as they have increased water penetration and are more efficient.  You don’t lose the illumination at the bottom of the deeper tanks.

With this lighting you are not restricted as much to the content of your aquarium, stock levels can be increased without the worry of inadequate levels of light.
The greater intensity, deeper penetration and Higher output allows you to stock your tank with a wide range of Plants and fish, allowing them to flourish which was not possible with T8 Fluorescents.

Customer Reviews

Good bulbs – Review by Courtney (Posted on 13/02/2018)
The bulbs give of a nice pink hue which makes my aquascape pop. It brings out all the reds, oranges and yellows really well. Much better value than the official Juwel bulbs.

As for plant growth and longevity only time will tell. So far so good.
T5 bulbs – Review by Tez (Posted on 26/12/2017)
Very happy better then the t5 bulbs.
T5 splendour – Review by Gabriel (Posted on 20/11/2016)
A very compatibly priced T5 with enormous potential. The spectral representation and versatility is beyond description. You will have to try it to see the subtle enhancement it affords your aquatic friends/inhabitants. The spectral width is set perfectly which somehow accentuates the reds and purples without exaggeration or undue flattery. The presentation and packaging just looks good and the two lugs at both ends looks and feels and fits the part snugly. The tube locks into place smoothly and functionality begins. The external wrapping to the tubes may be a little "drab" to some of you. But be hold! the quality of these T5 speaks for themselves..iQuatics have done it again. I will buy more if prices cut further?
Good Service and Product – Review by Heidi (Posted on 13/09/2016)
I ordered 3 of these for my Juwel Vision 260 tank after yet another Juwel T5 bulb blew.

They are a lovely colour and nice and bright :) has really made the tank look good.

One unfortunately came broken despite the great packaging. I contacted iquatics with pictures of the broken one and got an email and a phone call very promptly to say they were going to send another :) That arrived in one piece although the courier had squashed the corner. Can't fault iquatics customer service :)
good – Review by stuart (Posted on 05/09/2016)
bulbs arrived really quick, impressed with them, nice bright bulb, colors on the plants and fish look really nice.
wow – Review by greg (Posted on 20/06/2014)
using these after having T8 tubes forever.The difference is nothing short of incredible.
These tubes make all the difference between having a well planted flourishing aquarium.
to having an aquarium with plants that grow like you have never seen before.
There is no excuse for anyone not being able to grow tropical plants anymore.
The light penetrates right to the bottom of the tank,making even the small hard to grow plants take on a new lease of life.
T5 Tropical tubes....Brilliant

Hi there. I'm looking for some new tubes for my juwel vision 260. I believe it’s a t8 unit. What are my options?


  • Posted by Richard Latham on Tuesday, 27 September 2011
    The options would be to change the lighting unit to a T5 pendant of Highlite t5 fitting; otherwise you would have to stick with the existing T8 setup which I’m afraid we don’t manufacture the tubes you require.
Posted by Alex 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?


  • Posted by Richard Latham on Tuesday, 27 September 2011
    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.
