Double the luminosity of your T5 and T8 fluorescent lamps. The special geometry of the HiFlex reflectors allows maximum light yield in your aquarium.
Increase the light yield in your aquarium by more than 100% with the new HiFlex reflectors. The special geometry of this new generation of reflectors reflects the light of your T5 or T8 lighting at an optimum angle and thus maximises the light yield in your aquarium.
Thanks to the replaceable reflective film, HiFlex reflectors always guarantee optimum results, even after a long period of use.
If you are using a MultiLux T5 light unit in your aquarium, JUWEL Aquarium recommends using the fluorescent tubes HiLite T5 Marine and HiLite T5 Blue. Both lighting media are designed to recreate the lighting conditions of a coral reef and they specifically promote the growth of your corals. The HiLite T5 Marine with its brilliantly white 14,000 Kelvin light provides for bright conditions, while the HiLite T5 Blue creates fascinatingly deep blue tones.
It is not possible to replace a T5 HiLite fluorescent tube with an LED tube. The MultiLux light units may look identical, however, they feature different integrated control units for the fluorescent tubes’ ignition voltage. Each control units is designed for the specific light unit. If you would like to change to LED operation, you should buy a designated MultiLux LED light unit or a HeliaLux light unit. Both products are a perfect match for your aquarium and they are quick and easy to install.
The T8 fluorescent tubes should be replaced every 10 to 12 months, to ensure the tubes’ luminosity. The HiLite T5 fluorescent tube should also be replaced every 10 to 12 months, with the exception of the HiLite Marine and the HiLite Blue. Those two models should be replaced more frequently, every 6 to 8 months.
The MultiLux LED features a higher light intensity while saving up to 50 % of energy compared to conventional T5 technology. Further advantages of the MultiLux LED include a longer service life of the LED tubes, and durable light quality compared to T5 fluorescent tubes.
To ensure waterproofness of your JUWEL aquarium light unit, we recommend that the fitting rings are replaced once a year. When using a T8 or T5 light unit, the fluorescent tubes should also be replaced on this occasion.
Our warranty period for all parts of the aquarium is 2 years from the purchasing date. Filter sponges and fluorescent tubes T5/T8 as well as all components that are subject to normal wear, e. g. the impeller of the pump, are excluded from the warranty. The basis for the warranty is the availability of a valid proof of purchase.
As the commercially available standard T5 tubes were only developed for general room illumination purposes, the lighting technology had to be adapted to the common aquarium dimensions in order to ensure the complete illumination over the entire length of the aquariums. As a result, we are able to completely illuminate the entire area of our aquariums with lengths of 60, 80, 100, 120 and 150 cm with high illumination.
The spectrum of the T5/T8 fluorescent tubes or the LED lighting media is printed on the respective packaging and you can also find it in the image gallery on the product page.
We recommend the use of reflectors for T5 and T8 fluorescent tubes for two reasons: Reflectors increase the illumination by 100% which is particularly positive, especially in case of plant aquariums. In addition, they serve in a very convenient manner as a visor which simplifies the maintenance of the aquarium a great deal. All steps in the aquarium may be performed in a more successful and comfortable manner under full illumination. LED light units (such as the MultiLux LED, NovoLux LED, HeliaLux LED, HeliaLux Spectrum) do not require reflectors. The LED light units are already optimally adjusted to the aquariums and they have an ideal beam angle.
As the plants prefer stable light conditions, the lighting cannot be switched on in different steps.
Unfortunatly our T5 light units are not dimmable.
