Full Spectrum Tropic 6500k T5 Bulb
The Giesemann PowerChrome TROPIC is one of the few existing lamps that actually produces full spectral components of its entire range from blue to red. Based on this, the Giesemann TROPIC lamps do not only reflect the colors with their natural properties, but also have a negative impact on the growth of algae.
Aquatic plants as well as corals in the upper reef zones have adapted to the entire light spectrum of sunlight. In natural environments aquatic plants are almost exclusively to find in well-lit and clear waters in just little depth (up to 2-3 m). As well many coral species that are kept in aquariums are from shallower depths, where the entire light spectrum of sunlight is still available.
All visible light components are nearly equally passing through the water until a depth of about 6m. Therefore it is important to both, plants and corals, provide a light source available, which comes as close as possible to sunlight.
Tip: By keeping your water crystal clear will help increase the light penetration into the tank.
BRS takes the utmost care when packaging and shipping bulbs. We are always trying to find the best possible way to ship bulbs and minimize breakage. We are very successful at shipping bulbs, however if damage is to ever occur during transit please just let us know as soon as possible.
I am a weirdo also... By Orcus Varuna on 7/22/2017Orcus Varuna would recommend this product to a friendLove 6500k bulbs I use one of them in conjunction with a coral plus to supplement the hyper blue lighting my AI Hydra 52HD puts out. Since the LED's are so powerful the 6500k bulb does not over power the tank and with the coral plus gives my display a nice 12-14k look.
Love it By Jonathan on 6/12/2016Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendI'm one of the weirdos that uses this bulb in my main display tank bulb combo. I only use 1 in the 8 bulb fixture but it's so bright that's all I need. Placed in the spot where it's directly over the most sps corals, it really helps to bring out their more natural daylight colors. I'll always insist on running one
Best Refugium Light By Gene on 3/10/2016Gene would recommend this product to a friendI use the Giesemann Tropic T5's on the Giesemann Razor for the lighting on my Triton system refugium. I tried floral LED, power compacts and other T5 combinations. The Giesemann Tropic T5's worked the best because they are a full spectrum lighting closely matching the spectrum of natural sunlight.
