iQuatics Nano T5 lighting fixtures were just announced by the UK manufacturer aimed at nano aquariums looking to add more lighting punch. Coming in four or six-bulb setups, the new iQuatics Nano T5 fixtures are made for aquariums needing 50 cm long (approx. 20 in.) fixtures.
Either model of the fixture comes with two power cords to have more control over intensity to simulate a more gradual lighting cycle. Despite their small stature, the iQuatics T5 lights are sleek looking and feature adjustable sliding mounting brackets to fit whatever size aquarium you may have, you can also use mounting cables to suspend the fixture above the aquarium.
Another added bonus of these fixtures is the affordable price also includes T5 bulbs in your choice of iQuatics bulbs. Starting at £115.99 (approx $188.79 USD), the iQuatics Nano T5 fixtures are now available online at the iQuatics website or in various UK and worldwide aquarium shops. iQuatics is based in the UK so the plug is likely to be a standard UK socket, incompatible with US or European sockets and current, but maybe they have internal ballasts with universal voltage, although this is unconfirmed. Full press release and images follows.
