ATI Sunpower T5 light fixture. 60″ 8x80w With nearly 10 years of proven results, the ATI SunPower is used worldwide. When used with ATI T5 bulbs, produces significantly more light than most other equally-sized T5 fixtures. The SunPower produces an even blanket of light that bathes the entire tank in light, producing far fewer shadows and little-to-no hot spots. T5 lighting is uniform and intense, filling caves and overhangs and providing corals in darker areas of the tank the light they need to thrive. The active cooling system allows bulbs to run at more optimal temperature, improving both bulb output and bulb life. 98% reflective miro-silver, bent parabolic reflectors direct the light where you need it most, on your corals. Insert T5 bulbs that best suit your needs and plug it in. Almost any ATI bulb combination will effectively grow coral. Since T5s are not a point-source of light like with LEDs, there’s no need to worry about adjusting different color channels. The result is significantly less risk of burning corals. While LEDs have a great reputation for efficiency, most people don’t realize that tanks switching from LED to T5 use a comparable amount of power. The results speak for themselves. The SunPower features independent lighting control. Two bulbs are wired on one power cord, with the remaining bulbs wired on a second power cord. This also allows for dawn/dusk simulation. The SunPower produces a beautifully blended color spectrum, creating uniform light and color throughout the tank. A non-diffused LED fixture, on the other hand, produces district bands of colors resulting in uneven light and color throughout the tank. The SunPower uses T5 high-output fluorescent bulbs that are available in a variety of colors that, when combined, allow you to achieve a unique color to suits your aquatic life and personal preferences. These bulbs produce a blended spectrum directly over your tank. Whereas, many non-diffused LED fixtures* utilize various points of individually colored lights. When these lights radiate over your tank and hit the flowing water below, you may see what is commonly known as a ‘disco ball’ effect of colored lights and shadows moving over the coral and sand below.
