The AquaSun LED HO Aquarium Fixture from Zoo Med is an ultra-versatile, high performance lighting solution for freshwater and marine aquariums. It produces brilliant, crisp light to enhance the appearance of your aquarium and its inhabitants, while consuming a modest 30 watts. It also creates a magnificent underwater shimmer effect that mimics the natural sparkle of the sun's rays.
The AquaSun LED HO features an innovative modular design that allows you to customize the light output to suit different applications. This 48" fixture comes equipped with six standard LED light modules for a total of 36 ultra-bright LEDs. Daylight or Plant modules can be easily installed to replace the stock modules (replacement modules sold separately). All modules feature quick connect couplings for effortless installation.
AquaSun LED Modules
Standard Light Module - (4 x 1W white 6,000K LEDs / 2 x 500mW blue 465nm LEDs) - Provides crisp white light to illuminate your aquarium, and blue light to promote coral growth and create a lunar effect.
Daylight Module - (4 x 1W white 6,000K LEDs / 2 x 500mW white 6,000K LEDs) - For applications where additional white light is needed.
Plant Module - (4 x 1W white 6,000K LEDs / 2 x 500mW Red LEDs) - Provides the wavelengths required to promote photosynthesis and chlorophyll absorption in live plants.
The AquaSun LED HO employs ultra-bright LEDs with a rated operational life of 20,000 hours. It features dual power switches for independent control of the white and blue LEDs, allowing you to simulate a natural light cycle. Use the white and blue LEDs for daytime illumination and switch to the blue LEDs on their own for a "lunar effect". This nighttime mode provides sufficient light for viewing without disturbing the residents of your aquarium.
To ensure durability and safe operation in moist environments, the AquaSun LED HO Aquarium Fixture features a low profile external housing made entirely from aluminum (a superior alternative to plastic). Integrated heat sink technology ensures a cool running fixture, while a built-in acrylic splash guard protects the internal components from water damage.
For a custom fit, the 48" AquaSun LED HO Fixture includes fully adjustable mounting rails that fit aquarium frames ranging from 48" to 60" in size. Alternatively, the included stainless steel "aircraft cable" suspension kit can be used to hang the fixture above your aquarium for a clean and modern aesthetic.
