Its compact and slim-profile style is suitable for applications where space is limited. The fixture is equipped with a modern, designer-black aluminum housing and a highly-polished reflector for optimal lighting. It also includes a protective acrylic lens cover which allows easy access to the lamps.
Other features include: on/off switch and built-in ballast; adjustable width tank mounts; comes with one 14 watt Colormax lamp and one 14W 6700K lamp; ideal for freshwater and planted aquariums.
The 14W Colormax Full-spectrum T-5 fluorescent lamp has color-enhancing phosphors that provide full-spectrum light from 350 to 750 nanometers. It offers high-intensity output that enhances the natural beauty of freshwater fish and plants.
The 6700k Plant Lamp T-5 fluorescent lamp provides aquatic plants with the light energy necessary to stimulate lush growth. The lamp has a full-spectrum, high-intensity output that replicates sunlight with essential light requirements to promote photosynthesis.
This was the best price I could find on T5 lights, and works exactly as intended. It's a little long for my ten gallon, but it is laying on top of a glass canopy, so no worries. It does get hotter than I thought it would, that's the only down side. I will be upgrading to a 30 gallon at some point and this light will fit that tank, so I will have no issues then.
