Equipped with 10 white and 16 blue LEDs, the IllumiREEF LED maximizes coral color and growth with one 48" tube.
Fluorescent tubes emit light in 360 degrees. This requires fixture reflectors to redirect over 80% of the light created. Some light is still lost. The IllumiREEF T10 LED has a 60 degree beam angle directing light right where you want it - in your aquarium.
Eliminate unwanted aquarium heat. LEDs are highly efficient losing very little energy in producing heat. 90% of the energy they consume produces light. In contrast, 75-90% of the energy Fluorescents consume creates heat.
Since LEDs are more efficient with the energy they consume, they require less to produce comparable, and in many cases, greater amounts of light. At only 26 watts, the IllumiREEF T10 LED uses far less energy to operate. Less energy used equals lower cost of operations.
You don't have to replace your aquarium lights every year. The IllumiREEF T10 LED has a 50,000 hour life. Used 8 hours a day, as recomended, it will last over 17 years.
