  • Induction lighting?

    Hi Guys,

    After a year under the pergola at my new home I am finally getting my aquarium inside setup!
    One of the metal halides has gone again so I am looking at my options.
    Has anyone tried induction lights?
    Would be very keen to hear.

    Cheers,
    Phil

    I reckon that means no-one has tried them

      It is marginally better than metal hallides. You are better off with T5 or T5HOs if you don't want to go down the path of LEDs.

        Hi Phil,
        Sorry, I can't remember reading or hearing anything about using induction lights for aquariums. Doesn't mean it's not done though.

        Very excited that you're getting this going again! I'm looking forward to the pics!

          First time hearing about this concept. I don't think I've ever seen them anywhere let alone aquariums.

            Hi Guys,
            Vlad - I'll take marginally better than halides any day
            I've used high bay induction lights for a showroom.
            The main advantages are:
            You can use lower wattages than led
            They last up to 100,000 hours
            They dont have the operating temperature limitations of led
            They generate minimal heat

            The main disadvantage is that no-one has anything.
            I'll keep looking.

            Cheers,
            Phil

                  Good luck dude.

                  It appears to be very expensive though.

                    LED high bay lights last longer than metal halides. Moreover, they are more energy-efficient than metal halides.
