Simplicity by Design
The Nova Extreme™ combines the best in both design and functionality and is a great addition to any aquarium. The sleek black-aluminum construction not only maintains a low profile on the aquarium, its design also allows it to dissipate heat away from the aquarium, lamps and components. Our new polished individual single lamp reflector directs over 99% of the T5 lighting into the aquarium while a polycarbonate splash lens protects lamps. Sliding aquarium mounts adjust easily to ensure a proper fit for your aquarium. Only a single power cord delivers all the lighting you need for the ultimate looking aquarium.
The ultimate in performance
SlimPaq High Output T-5 lamps offer a quantum leap in lamp performance, nearly doubling the lumen output compared to an ordinary T5, T8 or T12 fluorescent system. Using our proprietary blend of tri-phosphors, the high PAR & CRI levels produce stunning color rendition and penetrating intensity. Coupled with our finely tuned electronic driving system, SlimPaq lamps have the longest usable life-span of any aquarium lamp.
Each Nova Extreme includes two high output T5 SlimPaq lamps and sliding docking mounts.
SlimPaq Actinic T5HO
(Saltwater models only) - A super actinic blue lamp emitting light energy required by corals and invertebrates, along with producing a high UV output. Outstanding color rendition that makes corals, invertebrates and fish fluoresce brilliantly.
SlimPaq Freshwater T5HO
(Freshwater models only) - A bright pinkish hue lamp emits the ideal light energy and spectrum required by freshwater plants for photosynthesis. High color rendition enhances the brilliant colors in freshwater fish and brings out the lush green in plants.
SlimPaq 10,000K T5HO
- A powerful, penetrating full spectrum lamp replicating sunlight found on living coral reefs. Exceptional high lumen output concentrated between 400-480nm stimulates zooxanthellae production increasing both coral and invertebrate growth.

USA 18" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x20W 10K/460NM
Excellent light - works great on my marine tank - just what I needed to make my corals happy! Many thanks for a fabulous product!
Running on a fresh water planted tank
I settled on this after a lot of help from the Aqua Cave staff. I had been running 3 fixtures on my very heavily planted fresh water tank. Even though the plants were doing great, the number of fixtures was getting out of hand. I got one of these and replaced the actinic blue light with a second white one. It doesn't look as bright as it did with the 3 fixtures and the light is a different color, but the plants all seem really happy and the fish do, also. I'm thinking about getting another one for it, just to make the tank brighter, but I'm not sure it wont be overkill for the plants. Well see. In the meantime, I have one fixture that has taken the place of 3 and it looks a whole lot better. I wouldn't hesitate to do this again on another tank. It was a great choice.
I'm running 2 of these in my sump/refugium. Working great so far.
