Light comparison

infoA 230 litre (W70xH65xD50cm) malawi aquarium was used for all the photographs. The information on the photographs about the light colours relate to a single 50cm eco+ LED bar operating at 100% output in each case. Of course, combinations of light colours can be programmed or mixed to suit individual taste using a lighting control system.

PLANT-GROW

100,Medium

The LED bar in the PLANT-GROW version is an absolute innovation and is already used in various versions of the aquaLUMix. In contrast to the GROWx5, the PLANT-GROW combines the light spectra required for optimal photosynthesis and plant growth in a single chip. Thus the PLANT-GROW is less colorful and a little less special, but produces a brighter and more even light compared to the GROWx5. The general colour splendour of your aquarium is increased.
The PLANT-GROW is also intended to be used as an optional light in combination with other "white" light colours, because this light colour alone has a definite lilac/violet appearance. Thus PLANT-GROW is comparable with the well-known and loved GROLUX fluorescent tube lighting.
