Arcadia Marine White 14000K T5 Bulb
The Arcadia Marine White lamp has a colour temperature of 14,000K (Kelvin) and an exceptional lumen output combined with very good colour rendition. The tri-phosphor formulation provides consistent long life and stability of output at these high levels of performance.
These factors make it the ideal choice for the serious marine aquarist, with excellent levels of light throughout the aquarium and extraordinary clarity for viewing the constantly changing marine environment.
A high proportion of light energy is concentrated in the area between 400 and 480nm, which also assists in the promotion of zooxanthellae production to encourage coral and invertebrate growth.
The other peaks across the spectrum allow the true, vibrant and natural colours of the fish, corals and invertebrates to be enhanced and to really stand out.
• T8, High Output T5 and Compact Lamp versions available
• Powerful penetrating white light
• Accentuates natural fish colours
• Colour replicates reef environment
The colour temperature and spectrum of the Marine White 14,000K Lamp, coupled with its high lumen output (particularly for the T5 lamps) replicates the intensity of the sun around shallow coral reefs.
Arcadia Marine Blue Actinic T5 Bulb
The Marine Blue 420nm Actinic lamp re-creates the effect of a moonlit ocean and brings out corals natural fluorescence. Unlike many competing products the Marine Blue Lamp peaks at 420nm, the optimum point in the spectrum for marine photosynthesis
The Arcadia Marine Blue Actinic lamp range has been created to provide the specific spectrum (400 – 480nm) necessary to achieve the blue chlorophyll absorption for zooxanthellae symbiosis to develop. This concentration of light energy in the so called ‘actinic’ range peaking at 420nm, is essential for the survival and good health of fish, corals and invertebrates in marine aquariums.
Another important element of the Arcadia Marine Blue Actinic lamp is the UV output present, which creates a very pleasant fluorescent effect on corals, invertebrates and exotic marine fish. When used at night with no other lamps, the effect is of a dark moonlit night with the vivid colours of the corals and invertebrates fluorescing brilliantly.

• Near UVA light creates fluorescence
• Promotes marine photosynthesis
