Aquatic Life 61" G2 T5HO Hybrid Fixture
Combine your favorite LED Light module between proven T5 lights to create a stellar lighting system!
Accepts three Kessil, Ecotech, AI, or LED Light Module
Aquatic Life's T5HO Hybrid Lighting Fixture lets you combine your favorite LED light module between two banks of T5 lights. The T5 lights are powered by HEP Ballasts for fast firing and excellent color rendition. Each T5 lamp has their own reflector and is held in by traditional bulb clips that have a plastic coating to protect your bulb. Aquatic Life has even gone above and beyond by including silicone end caps that make changing bulbs super fast and easy.
When you combine LED and T5 lighting you can have the best of both worlds. T5 lighting has a proven track record with their full spectrum bulbs and edge to edge coverage, and almost anyone can have success with the right fluorescent lamps. Being in the 21st century everything we own must have some type of control, and that is where T5 fails, but LED shines. LED lights are known for their ability to ramp up and down giving dusk to dawn effects while being able to change colors and spectrums throughout the day as well. LED lights provide great shimmer, and when paired with T5 lights almost creates a realistic look that you would actually find in a shallow reef.
Pair the Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture with some of the most popular LEDs like Kessil, Ecotech, or Aqua Illumination for a successful combination of T5 and LED lighting. Each hybrid fixture includes mounts that can accept some of the larger lights like the Kessil A360 and Aqua Illumination Hydra FiftyTwo HD, and also some of the smaller modules like the AI Prime HD and Ecotech XR15w lights.
Includes mounts for the following models of LED Lights:
Note: Bulbs and LED Modules Sold Separately
*AI Prime HD lights require the use of the Prime Hanging Kit (sold separately)
**T5 power cords are routed on opposite sides of each fixture

The AP9X Mounting Arm is a sleek, low profile mounting option designed for the new Kessil AP9X Controllable LED Light. The AP9X Mounting Arm allows the fixture to be mounted with just a single arm, providing maximum light spread with minimum intrusion on tank aesthetics. The mounting arm also includes an integrated swivel joint, giving you the ability to easily adjust and orient your light to eliminate shadowing. The unit can be adjusted in height and from back to front (for 18" - 24" wide tanks) and features internal cable management to route power cords through the arm for a flawless finish.
The AP9X is also backwards-compatible with all AP700 mounting options, including the Hanging Kit and two standard Mounting Arms.
Seachem Reef Reactor Lg
Reef Reactor™ is a high-purity source of aragonite, which supplies all important elements for optimal ionic balance and robust coral growth and coloration in reef aquaria. It has a grain size of approximately 1-3 cm. (Reef Reactor™ Md is 0.5 - 1 cm). It is intended for use in calcium reactors where it is dissolved slowly with the addition of CO2. As it dissolves, it provides calcium, magnesium, strontium, potassium, and carbonates among other important elements for reef aquaria. It is excellent at increasing and stabilizing alkalinity, which also supports a stable pH and encourages the rapid formation of coral skeletal material. With high levels of both calcium and magnesium, it offers an excellent means of balanced supplementation for rapid growth and propagation of corals and calcareous animals in reef aquaria. It possesses the highest level of soluble potassium of all competing brands while exhibiting the lowest levels of both aluminum and phosphorus.
Rinse Reef Reactor™ prior to initial placement in your calcium reactor. The rate of water flow through the reactor in conjunction with the pH of the water inside the reactor will control the rate of media dissolution. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions furnished with the calcium reactor and adjust the rates of water flow and CO2 injection to attain the desired concentrations of calcium and alkalinity in the effluent.
Use Seachem’s Reef Status™: Magnesium and Reef Status™: Calcium test kits to measure alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium concentrations.
