From Marine Depot site: Hello guys and gals, Kelly from Marine Depot here and in this episode, we are going to take a close look at an exciting light fixture from Aquatic Life that is really creating some buzz in the industry. The Hybrid T5 fixture with LED Mounting System from Aquatic Life gives you four T5 bulbs to run alongside your favorite LED light fixture giving you the best of both lighting worlds at an affordable price. Using a combination of LED lights and T5 fluorescent lights is a great way to get the economical and advanced operation of the LEDs with the brilliant color rendition and even blending of light spectrums from the T5 lamps.


The Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture not only gives you this ability but allows you to take advantage of that expensive LED light already hanging above your reef tank. The fixtures are priced in the $200-450 dollar range and are currently available in four sizes a 24”, 36”, 48” and 61”.  


The Hybrid fixture includes x4 T5 lamps spread amongst two fixtures. The two fixtures are attached with brackets on each end. You can then utilize the included adapters to attach your favorite high output LED light right down the middle. The flat rectangle adapters are designed to be used with the EcoTech Marine and Aqua Illumination brand LED lights but could easily be used with a number of other LED lights on the market. The additional round brackets are designed to accept the popular Kessil A360 and A160 series lights which simply drop into the bracket with no screws or other hardware needed.

A full list of all the known compatible LED lights is shown in the video - please feel free to let us know in the comments if you find another brand of LED lights that works. The Aquatic Life hybrid fixture is sure to make a splash in the lighting game so be sure to give us a call if you are looking to upgrade your reef with these awesome lights.
