Welcome to the future of aquarium lighting!

Combine your favorite LED Light module along with Aquatic Life's T5 lighting fixture to create a stellar lighting system!

Accepts many of your favorite LED lighting modules, including popular models from EcoTech, AI, and Kessil!

  • Includes standard LED Light Brackets
  • Powder Coated Aluminum Frame
  • Individual T5 Reflectors to prevent light spillage
  • Silicone T5 Sockets to protect from moisture & salt creep
  • HEP Ballasts compatible with popular T5 HO lamps (including ATI and Giesemann)
  • Decorative wire-cover endcaps included

*NEW to the G3 Series*

  • Power cords run and exit on the same side of the fixture for better cable management
  • Includes two styles of corner caps to allow for more cord-routing configurations
  • Better compatibility with Peninsula tanks
  • C14 type connectors on power cords
  • Rounded fixture corners and thinner overall profile


Aquatic Life's T5HO Hybrid Lighting Fixture lets you combine your favorite LED light module between two banks of T5 lights. The T5 lights are powered by HEP Ballasts for fast firing and excellent color rendition. Each T5 lamp has its own reflector and is held securely in place by a bulb clip. Aquatic Life has even gone above and beyond by including silicone end caps that make changing bulbs super fast and easy. 


When you combine LED and T5 lighting you can have the best of both worlds. T5 lighting has a proven track record with their full spectrum bulbs and edge to edge coverage, and almost anyone can have success with the right fluorescent lamps. Being in the 21st century everything we own must have some type of control, and that is where T5 fails, but LED shines. LED lights are known for their ability to ramp up and down giving dusk to dawn effects while being able to change colors and spectrums throughout the day as well. LED lights provide great shimmer, and when paired with T5 lights almost creates a realistic look that you would actually find in a shallow reef. 


Pair the Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture with some of the most popular LEDs like Kessil, EcoTech, or Aqua Illumination for a successful combination of T5 and LED lighting. Each hybrid fixture includes standard bracket mounts that can accept some of the larger lights like the EcoTech Radion XR30 and Aqua Illumination Hydra 64 HD, but also some of the smaller modules like the AI Prime HD and EcoTech XR15 lights. With the available optional circular brackets that can be purchased separately, you can also install round lights like the popular Kessil A160, A360, or A360X LED modules.


The G3 series of Aquatic Life T5HO Hybrids has been slightly redesigned to better accommodate more diverse aquarium setups. The power cords are now able to exit the same side of the fixture, and additional endcaps have been included for more seamless Peninsula installations. Power cords also include C14 type connectors, which will allow you to easily switch power outlet plugs, or even extend the length of the cord to better suit your setup needs. The G3 series fixtures remain compatible with all G2 LED brackets and suspension hardware.


Includes mounts for the following models of LED Lights:


Note: Separate LED mounts for Kessil A160, A360 & A360X are available for purchase.

Tuning Your New LED Light

Most LED lights will actually put out more light than your corals will actually need and without a PAR Meter to test the overall output, it is really hard to guess if the light is too dim or intense. We highly suggest using a PAR Meter to test the output of your lights at different points throughout your tank that you can use to tune the lights output or know where to put specific corals.

Is it possible to add a 4th radion if I add an additional bracket??

You certainly can add a 4th with an additional bracket.

The 60” ATI is 80 watts. Is this wattage OK for this unit? Also, I currently run LED’s and want to know what the best combo of T5 lighting to buy for 200 gallon mixed reef.

Thank you!

Answer by: James Johnson (BRS Staff) on Feb 20, 2023, 10:15 AM
I'm assuming the 60" ATI lights are what would go in here?
Question by: Keith Wicks on Oct 8, 2022, 9:54 AM
Yep! Any 60" T5 bulb can be put into this fixture.
Answer by: William Reed (BRS Staff) on Oct 11, 2022, 10:20 AM
Is this fixture dimmable with the 0-10v output on the apex? If not, is there a 60" fixture that is?
Question by: Bryce Barry on Aug 28, 2022, 10:27 PM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. No, this will not dim.

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!
