Home Aquariums need to be illuminated for the fish to survive, this applies to both freshwater and marine Aquariums. There are however, different types of lights available for either one.
Most Aquarium tanks are sold devoid of a hood and lights, so these items, as well as light fittings, have to be purchased separately, adding a substantial amount to the purchase price of your Home Aquarium.
Certain fish require different lighting conditions; your pet shop or Aquarium supplier will advise you on what kind of lighting you need for the particular kind of fish that you are keeping.
Fluorescent Lighting is best for brightly coloured fish because the light accentuates the bold colours of the fish and produces a mysterious effect in the tank which highlights the movements of the fish.
Home Aquarium Lights are available in a range of sizes that are designed to service the most common aquarium tanks. You will need to select the correct combination of lights to suit your Aquarium tank.
Much harder lights are needed for marine tanks, particularly if you plan to install a coral reef. These reefs, which will grow in your tank, require a lot of pure light to exist and getting a lot of light into the depths of your Aquarium tank means installing one or more powerful light bulbs.
The corals and anemones need a lot of light and sensitivity to survive, so Lighting will play a very important part in your Home Aquarium if you are going to display a healthy coral reef.
Home Aquarium Lighting is available at all pet shops and Aquarium suppliers. The lights are easy to install but you will find that they are quite expensive. It will pay you to shop around.
Home Aquarium Lighting is essential, not only for the health of your fish, but for the visible attraction of your Home Aquarium, as a dominant feature in your home.
By selectively choosing an array of lights, from brilliant white to subdued colours, your Home Aquarium and it’s contents will provide lasting visual pleasure for all of the members of your household
