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.

GROWx5

100,Medium

The GROWx5 LED bar is a unique combination of 5 different wavelengths and promotes optimum and healthy plant growth, while generally brightening up the colours of your aquarium. This is due in principle to creating light with balanced proportions of blue and red and extending this with three further specially selected colour bands: green, orange and ultra-red.

Light colour: GROWx5

Colour rendering index: Ra/CRI = 32,7

Output: 25 Watt with 100cm length
