Product information

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.

Actinic light:
The JBL SOLAR MarinBlue tube generates a strong blue light which is also referred to as actinic light. It is a particularly effective short-wave light from the blue and ultraviolet spectral range. When this tube alone is switched on it creates the glow of the corals and the desired moonlight effect. The actinic spectral range of this tube accentuates the fluorescence of corals and clams (e.g. Tridacna). The JBL tube doesn’t generate a pure actinic spectrum, but has spectral components added which are especially suitable for the light in marine aquariums. It is NOT useful to illuminate marine aquariums with actinic light alone since the corals in our care don’t originate from great depths but mostly from depths up to 20 m and thus receive strong sunlight. The combination of JBL SOLAR MarinDay and JBL SOLAR MarinBlue is perfect. If you only install one tube you should choose the JBL SOLAR MarinDay

FAQ
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.
