Aquarium T5 Lighting Retrofit Kits

An aquarium retrofit kit is a lighting system without the fixture housing. Aquarium hood lights are often basic, low output lights. Retrofit aquarium lighting mounts great inside a fish tank hood as a replacement for a basic fish tank canopy light when you are ready to upgrade to live freshwater plants or coral.

A T5 retrofit kit will include ballast, reflectors, endcaps, and sometimes bulbs. The retrofit can then be mounted to the canopy or a custom-built mount or aquarium fixture. Look for individual T5 reflectors, which focus maximum light into the tank. Also, keep in mind that a T5 retrofit light will create heat, so consider mounting an aquarium fan or two to reduce heat.
