Passive Cooling

What makes us different is that we don’t use a fan. The aquaBAR is cooled with special aluminium fins. These are cooling so efficiently that you could operate the aquaBAR even at room temperatures of 50°C.

Absolutely silent

No bothering noises of a fan in the living area.

Longer life-time

Fans are often the weak spot at our competitors' lamps because of the high humidity. Once the fan fails, the LEDs overheat and are destroyed.


The aquaBAR is IP 65 certified as waterproof. If the aquaBAR falls into the water, there will be no damages.

Long life-time

Buying an aquaBAR is a clever investment into the future. You get a 3 years warranty on all parts. Our experience shows that most of the aquaLEDs we sold in 2011 are now in 2018 still up and running. For the aquaBAR HighColor+ we went a step further and optimized all parts for an even longer life-time:

Operation with low voltage

We use 6 watts premium LEDs but during normal usage we only operate them with 2 watts. That's the reason they last longer, consume less energy and keep their light intensity even after many years.


In the unlikely event that one LED fails, there will be no damage to the whole lamp. Our LEDs are wired separately and will keep working if one fails. You won't even notice a difference in brightness because the other LEDs will automatically be operated with a higher voltage.

High quality power adapter

The included power adapter is dimensioned for higher power consumption. That's why it doesn't get too hot and will last longer.

Perfect growth

Impress your guests with a brilliantly illuminated aquarium that amazes with colorful plants, corals and fish. Even deep aquariums are perfectly illuminated.

Easily dimmable

With our new Hybrid-Technology dimming takes place in 4000 tiny and unnoticeable brightness levels.

Absolutely flickerless

The light is especially comfortable for humans and animals because we use a new Zero-Flicker-Technology.


Very high level of energy efficiency of 170 lumens-per-watt. Ordinary LEDs only get 110 lumens-per-watt.

Elegant mounting

Included in the delivery is a modern 200 cm long steel cable that you can install on your ceiling. As an accessory we also offer a mounting system that is adjustable in length und can be swiveled. Furthermore the aquaBAR can also be installed lying on the aquarium or can be mounted under the cover.

The right size for your aquarium

You can get our lamps as one piece whereas you had to mount several of our competitors’ smaller lamps next to each other.

Evenly illuminated

Instead of illuminating spots, with the aquaBAR your aquarium will be illuminated over the whole area evenly which looks more natural and beautiful.

What’s more, there will be less shadows. Corals will grow better and there is no danger of burning corals because it is to bright on one spot.

Eight sizes

The aquaBAR HighColor+is available in eight different lengths and consists of one to eight LED-modules.

17 LEDs are installed in each module and have in total a maximum power consumption of 30 watts.
