Experience a whole new level of brightness

  • European style high output T5 lamps
  • Performance driven electronic ballast
  • Slim design & German parabolic reflector
  • Energy efficient
Simplicity by design
The Nova Extreme combines the best in both design and functionality and is a great addition to any aquarium. The sleek black-aluminum construction not only maintains a low profile on the aquarium, its design also allows it to dissipate heat away from the aquarium, lamps and components. German-style polished reflector directs over 99% of the T5 lighting into the aquarium while a polycarbonate splash lens protects lamps. Sliding aquarium mounts adjust easily to ensure a proper fit for your aquarium. Only a single power cord delivers all the lighting you need for the ultimate looking aquarium.

The ultimate in performance
SlimPaq High Output T-5 lamps offer a quantum leap in lamp performance, nearly doubling the lumen output compared to an ordinary T5, T8 or T12 fluorescent system. Using our proprietary blend of tri-phosphors, the high PAR & CRI levels produce stunning color rendition and penetrating intensity. Coupled with our finely tuned electronic driving system, SlimPaq lamps have the longest usable life-span of any aquarium lamp.

Lamp illumination
Each Nova Extreme includes two high output T5 SlimPaq lamps and sliding docking mounts.
  • SlimPaq Actinic T5HO (Saltwater models only) - A super actinic blue lamp emitting light energy required by corals and invertebrates, along with producing a high UV output. Outstanding color rendition that makes corals, invertebrates and fish fluoresce brilliantly.
  • SlimPaq Freshwater T5HO (Freshwater models only) - A bright pinkish hue lamp emits the ideal light energy and spectrum required by freshwater plants for photosynthesis. High color rendition enhances the brilliant colors in freshwater fish and brings out the lush green in plants.
  • SlimPaq 10,000K T5HO - A powerful, penetrating full spectrum lamp replicating sunlight found on living coral reefs. Exceptional high lumen output concentrated between 400-480nm stimulates zooxanthellae production increasing both coral and invertebrate growth.

awsome product

item is a lot brighter then i thought it would be. there are no dark spots in the tank. im seeing more growth in my plants from the light. the only problem is current usa doesnt make 10,000k anymore so they sent me the new model and that comes in 12,000k. so its more blue then white but the flora bulb and the 12,000k make it look white when viewing the tank.

High quality hood. Nice light distribution. The modern version does not have a fan so you don't need to worry about the sound levels.

Broken Upon Arrival

The product itself seems to be of great quality. My main complaint is that one of the ballast mounts was broken upon arrival. The busted piece was floating around in the lamp. Fortunately everything still appears to work ok...but it would be nice if stuff like this didn't get past QA.

Excellent light system

I have two of these over my 125 gallon freshwater tank and it illuminates it well. It has been running for over 2 months without any problems. Minimal assembly needed; just stick the bulbs in. I would buy this again and would highly recommend it to anyone. The price is very reasonable as well.

t5 ho freshwater

Probly the best value for the money out there. One thing to note however the 30" is actually a 24" bulb in a 30" body so if your tank is 30" long get the 30" cause the 24" does not extend to fit a 30" tank.The bulbs get quite hot but the body stays very cool has been totally reliable thus far and is silent when running.
