The 8 watt High Powered LED upgrade kit for the Paradiso aquarium features:
High Intensity Lighting: Stimulate Plant & Coral growth, replicating natural sunlight.
Creates a shimmering effect: An impressive natural lighting effect, seen throughout the aquarium.
Low Power consumption: Each bulb uses 1 watt power, reducing running costs as well as the environmental impact.
Contains no mercury: Fluorescent bulbs contain small amounts of mercury; LED’s use no heavy metals.
Increased Bulb life: An expected life span of 20,000hrs, or over 2years running 24 hours per day.
These kits were designed to upgrade the older fluorescent models to HPLED and so come affixed to a black plastic plate to fit the old model light box space.
When replacing HPLED's in a new model tank, you will need to remove the on/off switch from the plastic plate, it just requires a screwdriver and is very simple.
