Lighting With Aquarium Plants

For a beginning aquarist, lighting can often be an overlooked addition to your home aquarium. When it comes to lamps and led's, the options are almost endless. From an aesthetic colour feature, to ensuring proper photosynthesis and algae growth, your lighting options should be an important decision in your hobby.

Aquarium plants make a beautiful addition to all fish tanks and usually make a big difference in look and feel. Whether deciding on red light, green light, or blue light for aesthetic or for an addition to ensure healthy plants, aquarium lights ware a great investment.

Aquarium lighting can afford your aquarium plants with their much needed light. Additionally, quality led lights can provide your tank with a beautifully pleasing aesthetic aspect. Type and size of aquarium lights will depend on the needs of the life in your tank, as well as its size and your personal preference. Whether you would like your led's to have a bright light, or give the a feel of a natural environment, they are all deciding factors for you to take into consideration.

Brighter light systems are the key to seeing all the activity that goes on in an aquarium and to bring out the colours of your fish.

It is also important to remember that without adequate led aquarium lights, aquarium plant life won't grow and your fish might not be at their peak health. Research these factors thoroughly before you shop for aquarium lighting systems or before you buy a different sized tank.

Aquarium Lights

Any form of electricity that comes close to water needs to be specially designed for that purpose. Whether you are looking at led lights or another form of lighting, the quality of the product should always be taken into consideration. A fine light with a quality mount is a great investment and will give you many years of service. The great thing is, a good purchase should last you many years!

Amongst various options, aquarium owners can use fluorescent, or LED lights for fish or algae. Incandescent lights will heat water disproportionately due to excess energy, causing the water closest to the surface of the lights to be significantly warmer than water in other areas of the aquarium. LED lights produce virtually no heat and come in many colors. Remember, fluctuations in water temperatures can be harmful to some types of fish or might cause fish to swim exclusively in cooler areas of an aquarium.

Led lighting is great and is an industry standard for many industries. They are cost effective and give off virtually no warmth! Fluorescent tubes are also a common option, and usually also provide enough light, but with the side effect of added heating. The temperature needs vary according to the type of aquarium you are maintaining and what species you are keeping. If you are unsure as to what you need, just give us a call and we will advise you.

As with all animals, fish, reptiles; aquarium plants need light to survive. Algae growth and plant growth are an important aspect of any aquarium. We need to provide them with all they need to succeed in the tank. Varying degrees of lighting would be suitable to different species.
