Hybrid T5 Light 61 Inch Fixture with LED Mounting System and Decor Endcaps (Black) - Aquatic Life

Over the years, many seasoned hobbyists have realized that a combination of different light types works best for growing plants and corals. Like the metal halide lights of years ago, LED fixtures can provide high intensity, but 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.

In the past if you wanted to add T5s to your LED reef set-up, you either had to buy an expensive custom fixture or attempt to build and wire your own mounting frame. In most cases the results were less than optimal and even dangerous.

Now you can have both T5HO and LED lighting over your aquarium in a convenient, streamlined design! The Aquatic Life Hybrid T5 Fixture provides the perfect platform for creating the ideal lighting for your tank needs and is compatible with all the major LED reef fixtures:
The Aquatic Life Hybrid T5 Fixture is more than just a light mount. Its design uses a well-built frame that is both sturdy and attractive, and it even includes decorative end caps to provide cord management and concealment on both ends of the fixture. The power cords fit inside specially designed channels made from extruded Aluminum, and they`ve been designed to match the profile and color of the Hybrid fixture for a seamless finish.

The kit comes with universal mounts, so you can securely attach your LED fixtures. You’ll even be able to mix different brands of LED fixtures within a single Hybrid system! The kit also includes suspension cables to hang the Aquatic Life T5HO/LED Hybrid Fixture above your aquarium.

The Hybrid system uses up to four T5 HO lamps (not included) mounted in two reflector bays that direct the light into the reef for maximum output from your T5 lamps. The high-end HEP-brand ballast ensures quiet, flicker-free operation. Silicone end caps keep salt and spray away from the lamp pins.

The Hybrid is available in 24", 36", 48", and 61" lengths for aquariums 18-30" wide.


  • 8 standard brackets (for EcoTech or AI LEDs)
  • All attachment hardware and suspension cables
  • Decorative end caps to conceal and manage power cords


  • Dimensions: 63.5"L x 18"W
  • Weight: 21 lbs

**T5HO Lamps not included
