The Aquatic Life DX18 Hybrid Fixture allows you to dim T5HO lighting via third-party controller and pair it with your favorite LED light fixture over your aquarium, giving you more control to cater to your corals and plants lighting needs.
Throughout many years of the aquatic hobby of growing corals or plants, seasoned hobbyists have realized that a combination of different light types works best over their aquarium. Metal halide lights were once dominant in this field, however, through technology LED fixtures are now the lighting buzz, providing the same high intensity, without the operating cost. Also, like halide lights, LED’s are a point-source light, creating a shimmering effect in the aquarium. Combining LED light with T5HO fluorescent light provides the benefits of efficient intensity and diffused lighting – meaning no more shadows often seen with only LED lights.
Plug your aquarium controller into the 3.5mm female jack to take advantage of the DX18 dimming functions down to 2% dimness. The dual-channel jack allows a single line to control both channels of lighting: Channel 1 - for lamps 1 & 4, Channel 2 - for lamps 2 & 3.
The patent pending Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture provides a means for you to combine your preferred LED fixture with controlled T5HO fluorescent lighting.
