Current USA

Optimizing T5 lamps demands a thorough understanding of lighting and phosphor technology. Current TruLumen high output T5 lamps were designed to deliver the maximum amount of lumens from the shortest possible length. The result is an extremely bright lamp that can produce nearly twice the lumen output of a standard T8 fluorescent lamp in similar length.

Length (including pins): 16 1/2”

The Ultimate Spectrum
TruLumen T5HO lamps feature remarkable color consistency and rendition. This consistency is essential for simulating the wavelengths of natural light found on living reefs. Our proprietary blend of Nichia Phosphors creates colors that replicate those found in the natural aquatic environments. Available in Daylight 10,000k & 6,7000k and Actinic Blue 460nm & 420nm wavelengths.

Seamless Integration
A system using TruLumen high output T5 lamps offers a tremendous amount of lumens-per-watt (LPW). When coupled with a Current T5HO electronic driving system, TruLumen T5HO lamps can deliver anywhere from 95 LPW up to 105 LPW. By pairing a TruLumen T5HO lamp with a Current electronic ballast, you can create a lighting solution that will deliver unbeatable performance.

Available Colors:
  • 12,000K Power White:Containing a mix of high blend phosphors, these high output T5 lamps emit a crisp white light temperature and are optimum for coral growth bringing out the stunning colors in marine life. The 12,000K color temperature brings out the stunning colors in both marine and freshwater life without promoting nuisance algae. Can be used in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
  • 460nm Actinic Blue:The deep blue spectrum these lamps emit will give aquariums the “deepwater” blue look and enhancing the stunning colors in marine corals and fish. The 460nm actinic blue wavelength is a great lamp for actinic blue supplementation and encouraging fluorescence in both hard and soft corals. For use in saltwater reef & fish aquariums.

light

One of the lights arrived with the pins bent. It works but flickers like mad. I will probably ask for a refund.

Beautiful

These lights are stunning. They really make you feel like your tank is a part of the ocean. I switched back to these lights after using Geismann lights for two years. I used these lights before Geismann and had tremendous growth in my tank. The actinics are brilliantly blue and really bring out the colors in your coral

Excellent Bulbs

I purchased the T5 48" trulumen bulbs for my two T5 HO dual bulb coralife light fixture to run both lights with only actinics and wow do the corals pop out. Much better color from the bulbs than comparable power compacts with half the heat.
