Aquarium T5 Fixtures
T5 aquarium lighting fixtures are very energy efficient and put out very intense light. T5 lighting is appropriate for all soft corals, many hard corals, and all freshwater live plant tanks. T5 bulbs are thinner than the older normal output T8 and T12 bulbs, but they are similar in design to these normal output bulbs. T5 bulbs are taking over as the primary fluorescent bulb for aquarium lighting and fewer and fewer T8 and T12 fixtures are being manufactured. T5 fixtures such as the GLO T5 fixture are completely silent, with no fans installed in the fixture at all.
