Official Aqua One replacement T5 Sunlight 24w 18 inch Lighting Tube for use with certain Aqua One aquariums. Aqua One's Sunlight T5 provide a bright white output that is ideal if you have a have a planted aquarium and is often used alongside the Tropical or Marine Blue T5 tubes to acheive exactly the correct lighting effect in your aquarium.

T5 Sunlight 24w 18 inch Lighting Tube from Aqua One - (53130)

Aqua One's T5 Sunlight 24w 18 inch Lighting Tube provides high output, low energy lighting in Aqua One's certain Aqua One aquarium models, but will also work with any other aquarium that has been designed to accept a 18 inch T5, 24w fluorescent tube.

It's a good idea to always keep a spare lighting tube for your Aqua One aquarium. Your fish depend on aquarium lighting to regulate their internal clock, so they know when it's time to be active, time to be fed or time to sleep. Whilst your fish don't need light to survive, periods of time without light may leave them a little disorientated.

Replace every 6 months

All fluorescent lighting output starts to diminish from the moment first used and this is also the case with all T5 lighting, including the T5 Sunlight 24w 18 inch Lighting Tube. After around 6 months of normal use, the spectral output of your T5 lighting will have diminished to the point that a replacement is recommended.

It's sometimes difficult to tell just how much the lighting output has actually diminished until a new tube is installed, as the loss of spectral output over time is gradual. However you may find that algae has started to take hold or that your livestock isn't quite as active as it should be and if you are purchasing a second hand aquarium that utilizes T5 / 24w lighting, we'd recommend that you change the lighting tubes straight away.

Aqua One is all we do

Choosing the correct Aqua One 18 inch T5 lighting tube

Aqua One have two different colour outputs for their T5 18 inch fluorescent lighting tubes to suit all aquarium environments, including sunlight, tropical and marine blue options and each tube has it's own unique properties. Here's a brief guide:


T5 Sunlight - 24w / 18 inch

The T5 Sunlight Tube is the brighest of all the T5 8w lighting and provides bright white light output which aims to mimic natural sunlight in your aquarium. This light is often combined with either the tropical T5 tube or marine blue T5 to acheive the desired lighting effect.


T5 Tropical - 24w / 18 inch

Producing a very warm, pink light, the T5 tropical lighting tube is ideal where softer, richer lighting is desired. This lighting tube is somewhat duller than the sunlight tube and for this reason is often used in combination with the sunlight T5 in tropical setups, especially if live plants are present.

How to change your T5 Sunlight 24w 18 inch Lighting Tube

Please be patient when changing your T5 Lighting tube as it's usually quite a tight fit. To remove the tube you're replacing simply twist the tube half a turn anticlockwise and wiggle the old tube out of it's socket. Do take your time as the glass tube can break rather easily. Likewise when installing the new T5 fluorescent tube be careful to use the base to push the replacement T5 tube gently into the socket.
