Promotes coral growth
Solar Marin Blue promotes coral growth in marine aquariums. In addition it is the ideal night lighting for nocturnal animals. Combined with Solar Marin Day, it is the ideal lighting for marine aquariums.
JBL Solar tubes: My two new tubes don't "glow". Is that due to a production error?
We can exclude the possibility of a production error. If a light doesn't turn on, that is an unfortunate exception.
If you have a light bar with conventional electronic ballasts, I would recommend changing the starters once to see if they are causing the problem. Does the defective tube glow when you change the tubes on the light bar ? And the other one doesn't ? Then there is a defect in the light bar.
What do the hours of service life indicated for the fluorescent tubes mean ?
Our tubes are not tri-band tubes, but instead, are modern full-spectrum tubes.
If there is a loss of luminance, the operating conditions must definitely be checked. T8 tubes have the longest service life with the least losses at 25 °C ambient temperature, whereas the T5 tubes have the lowest at 35 °C ambient temperature. Most of the closed covers have ambient temperatures that are higher than 25 °C. Generalising data of 8,000 or 10,000 hours of service life should generally be treated with caution, as this data applies to optimised operating conditions.
On the JBL expeditions the lux values were measured in various parts of the world, both over and under water, by means of lux meters. As a comparison the JBL research department determined the underwater values in aquariums.
To find out the specific illumination intensity in your aquarium. Light - the motor of photosynthesis – is, along with the water parameters and the type and quantity of planting, also of crucial importance for plant growth.
