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 soft corals and allow them to flourish which was not possible with T8 Fluorescents.
Key Benefits of our High Output T5's:
- Greater Intensity
- Deeper Penetration
- High Power

- Great article quick service – Review by Paul (Posted on 15/10/2018)
The article was great. My juwel rio 400 lichts wouldn't come on anymore. After cutting up the base of the lights we ordered this and it was easy to install and works like a charm.
- A long journey...... – Review by Figureman (Posted on 26/09/2018)
The Twin 54w fluorescent light in my kitchen kept cutting out, meaning a new ballast would be required. I searched high and low over a few weeks to find a direct replacement. Finally I came across one at iquatics that rear was about 95% suitable. With a bit of retiring, BINGO!
A great product and perfect service.✔️

Tip: T8 Tubes are 8/8 inch in diameter (26mm). T5 Tubes are 5/8 inch in diameter (16mm). When measuring the length of your tube, measure in mm from end to end without the pins. These ballasts are to be used with T5 HO tubes(see label) and not T8 26mm.
