Apart from aquarium lighting, one of our most popular ranges is daylight light bulbs and daylight fluorescent tubes. These tubes can be used to simulate the effects of natural daylight, and can therefore change the appearance and atmosphere of a room by making it much brighter and warmer.

Another vast area of specialist lighting is photographic light bulbs, theatre and studio light bulbs. A full range of either A1 photographic light bulbs, T class theatre light bulbs or CP class studio light bulbs are available from our vast stocks.

Many of us have aquariums in our homes, and spend many hours searching for replacement fluorescent tubes to suit the tank we bought many years previously.

Well look no further as we are fully stocked up to suit all your need in aquarium lighting using only the best brands of fluorescent tubes from manufacturers such as GE Lighting and NARVA Gmbh.

Our range of fluorescent tubes for use in aquarium lighting are in various ranges, such as; Salt Water Fluorescent Tubes, Fresh Water Fluorescent Tubes and Plant Grolux Fluorescent Tubes. We have a full range of Daylight Fluorescent Tubes up to 9000K and 10000K which is perfect for natural day light tanks. Aquarium Lighting is vital to the health of a salt water or freshwater tank and that is why we stock the high quality brands we have ready for delivery today.

All aquatic keepers understand the importance of keeping live rock and corals alive and healthy. This is why we have high output fluorescent tubes available within our aquarium lighting range to ensure that live rock and corals are kept healthy.

There are also many led light fittings available in the market place for aquarium tanks, however to date we have not found any that we are comfortable in supplying within our range of standard LED Light Fittings range. Led Light Fittings like to dispense heat away from the LED chip to ensure that the chip is kept cold, which ensure that its life expectancy is kept as hi as possible. All aquariums for tropical and marine environments are kept at temperature that we have found does not suit LED light fittings in aquarium lighting.

To complement the fluorescent aquarium lighting we also offer a full range of fluorescent pre wired fluorescent tubes end caps in both IP64 and IP68 versions for water resistance. We also carry the full range and selection of Fluorescent Tubes starters and ballast units for all types and sizes of fluorescent tubes.

With our range of T5 and T8 fluorescent aquarium lighting and all of the accessories and fluorescent end caps we know we have products at considerably reduced costs from aquarium outlets on the high street and we deliver direct to your door as well.
