USHIO's Aqualite™ metal halide lamps are the original German made high Kelvin lamp. Used in reef aquarium systems for healthier fish and corals, USHIO lamps have set the benchmark for quality and performance.
Aqualite™ Metal Halide Lamps for Marine Aquariums and Reef Systems
USHIO Aqualite™ Metal Halide lamps feature the best combination of color balance, color rendering and photosynthetic light output for healthy marine aquarium and reef systems. Our USHIO BLV factory in Germany, collaborated with leading marine biologists to develop the first 10,000K Metal Halide lamps. We have successfully set the benchmark of quality for over ten years.
The Aqualite 10,000K lamps have a high color temperature from a single point source which simulates the appearance of sunlight near the equator in ocean depths of approximately 5 meters. Aqualite 14,000K and 20,000K+ lamps simulate water color at deeper depths and with differing wavelength spikes. Coral fluorescence will be excited in some species under the enhanced blue spectrum of the 14,000K and 20,000K+ lamps. The superior spectral balance of the Aqualite lamps are ideal for lighting and environmental conditions for reef systems. This includes fish, corals, invertebrates, marine fauna and flora.
At USHIO, we take the utmost care and inspection of our raw materials and maintain top standards in cleanliness during lamp production. USHIO Aqualite lamps utilize proprietary rare-earth mixtures to provide the most consistent lamp color over the entire lifetime of the lamp. Our arc tube forming process and coatings ensure that lumen depreciation levels are kept to a minimum. This is what sets USHIO apart from our competition.
Available in Double Ended 75W, 150W, 250W; Single Ended 175W, 250W, 400W, 1000W with color temperatures of 10,000K, 14,000K and 20,000K+

Excellent bulbJan 14, 2016
High quality long lasting bulb
I have been using these bulbs 24/7 on a large 150 gal refugium for macroalgae growth for more then 10 years. Fantastic response, harvesting lbs of caulerpa monthly, i have tried other bulbs without the same rate of growth. I have not tried LEDs yet.
