Our industry has enjoyed several leaps in fluorescent bulb technology; yielding more power and greater efficiency with each generation.
From VHO to Power Compacts, the calling card of each new leading technology has been a jump in lumens per watt. Enter T5 fluorescents.
A modest increase in efficiency over PC fluorescents is not the whole story here. The diminutive diameter of the T5 bulbs places little in the way of light rebounding from the reflector and offers a new benchmark in terms of the light produced making it into the aquarium for a significant and apparent improvement.

good product Review by tom
The bulbs are much better than the stock bulbs. I was recommended to these bulbs due to a black algae problem in my tank. Following installation, my plants are growing well and the black algae does not seem to be advancing. These bulbs work as advertised. (Posted on 12/21/2010)
T5 Aqualine Plant Grow Lamps Review by Bob
I am using two of these lamps in a four-lamp T5 fixture over an 80g high tech freshwater planted tank. I recently replaced two of four "no-name" 6500K lamps with these Aqua Medic Lamps, and the results are astounding. The plants are all pearling at a phenomenal rate. These lamps are now a "must" for my tank.
The next experiment for me will be to replace the remaining two "no-name" broad spectrum lamps with two fresh broad spectrum lamps (Giesemann PowerChrome midday 6000K lamps?). (Posted on 11/14/2010)
