Lighting

Let There be Light

Aquariums make it possible for us to enjoy natural biotopes – indoors. Almost no one can resist the fascination of these miniature worlds as they seemingly float in mid-room, and we are all uniquely calmed by the graceful movements of the fish, shrimp, coral, and plants. The more authentic the environment, the stronger the fascination. And for all this you need light: light is life.

Lighting from aquaLEDs produces a light that is as natural and as similar to sunlight as can be achieved with today‘s technology. The intensity and brightness of the lighting are like bringing the sun inside. It enhances the brilliant colors of the fish, and causes coral and plant life to grow luxuriously and stay vigorously healthy.

Our lighting system is completely silent and can be elegantly integrated into any private or public room, turning your aquarium into a real highlight. Maintenance free. Once it is set up, the miniature sun rises and sets – just as in nature. For a very, very long time.

But let the details of aquaLEDs lighting convince you …

Straight, but Flexible – aquaBAR

We at aquaLEDs offer natural, sun-like light for every aquarium – even those with individualized design. This is made possible by the aquaBAR, which – individually or in combination – can be suspended above an open tank or mounted in or under an existing aquarium cover. A beam angle of 120° is sufficient to homogeneously light any freshwater or saltwater aquarium. With the optional dimmer function you can adapt the maximum daylight brightness individually to the needs of your aquarium, while providing subdued moonlight for a natural nighttime environment.

Efficiency meets Beauty – aquaPAD

Light Made to Measure

As flat as an iPad. With the sensational thickness of only 14mm, the aquaPAD capitalizes on all the advantages of LED technology. Its incredible elegance reduces the question of lighting to a minimum, transforming the open aquarium into the focal point of a room. The aquaPAD’s housing is simultaneously a highly efficient cooling element – completely passive, and therefore completely silent!

Anodized aluminum looks good almost everywhere, but you also have the option of ordering your aquaPAD in a color that matches your setting. Available in lengths of 20 to 120 centimeters, it fits most tanks. Choose suitable light in coolWhite (for freshwater tanks) or reefBlue (for saltwater). At night, integrated moonlight* bathes your tank in a soft blue. No need to worry that the moonlight is too bright – the light from aquaLEDs is natural, day and night.

It’s the Results that Count.

With standard lightbulbs we were used to measuring light intensity in watts. With halogen lamps and fluorescent tube lighting, simple recalculation was possible. But with LEDs we have to talk about what is actually transmitted: perceived light, measured in lumens. This is influenced by so many factors that it is no longer even possible to use „watt“ as a basis for comparison. Instead, it only classifies the power consumption.

Less Electricity – More Light

In comparison to standard lighting, LEDs emit much more light. In addition, the LED generates a wide spectrum that covers all the color bands of the rainbow.

It is primarily the natural spectrum of aquaLEDs lighting that makes it suit the requirements for fresh or saltwater aquariums so perfectly. Our ideal temperature management, which needs neither fan nor water to stay cool, provides you with light that you see but don’t hear. And reduces power consumption even further. Lighting by aquaLEDs allows aquarium enthusiasts to enjoy their hobby completely without care. And to ensure that this status quo continues for a long time, all of the lights’ components are designed with maximum life expectancy. Guaranteed.

The higher the current input, the more light an LED produces. But the amount of light does not increase proportionally to the current: instead, the temperature rises, reducing the lifetime of the LED. In the lights by aquaLEDs, we use only the highest quality of 3-W LEDs by CreeTM, but operate them with only 1 watt. This creates an optimal balance between reduced current input, long life expectancy, and maximal brightness. One 25 watt module mean 3250 lumens.In short: maximum efficiency.

In representative measurement tests, the Technical University of Darmstadt demonstrated that in comparison with the products of a major German competitor, light produced by aquaLEDS was 40 % brighter per watt.
