Giesemann has been known for making high-quality light fixtures that use the highest quality parts available, with a durable powder coat finish. Most people will actually call their light fixtures a piece of furniture with how they look. We have run multiple Giesemann lights for years and have been very happy with them. Between Giesemann fixtures and the many other light fixtures out there, just simply the quality of parts and thickness of material make the Giesemann light fixtures our first choice for almost any tank where the light will be mounted externally and be visible.
24" Spectra has provisions for one Single Ended Metal Halide Lamp.

When it comes to metal halide lighting fixtures the Giesemann Spectra light fixture has proven to be the nicest in its class. With four T5 lamps per fixture which work beautifully with the metal halide lamp to give your tank a rich full color with a natural shimmer. Each T5 reflector has been designed with CAD software to maximize lighting output while creating an even blend of light throughout the tank.
We do prefer to use a mix of actinic and daylight T5 lamps along with a metal halide lamp around 14000K color temperature for a mixture of great growth and coloration.
Giesemann Metal Halide fixtures come coated in a super strong anti-corrosive finish to help keep the fixture looking like brand new, years down the line. All the parts are pre-painted before assembly to ensure all metal parts are covered and to allow for easy disassembly. Tempered Glass is included to protect the metal halide lamps from salt splash and dust, where the T5 lamps include acrylic splash guards.

Great piece of equipment By Chris on 5/10/2017Chris would recommend this product to a friendReceived the light and its a keeper! Beware... for those of you thinking its plug in play, your gonna have to cut the end of the chord on the ballast that you choose to splice the wire into the adapter provided with the light. I went with the 1x 400W Digital Metal Halide Ballast from Reef Brite. Its easy for those who work with electricity and power chords and and know what they are doing. For those of us who's first time dealing with MH and ballast's, can be a daunting experience especially if your cautious and don't want to screw up your $1k dollar investment (light and ballast). Happy Reefing!
