Fluvel Or Juwel Lighting

Recommended Posts

I can get either a Juwel 180 or a Fluval 200 soon, I'm just wondering which is the better lighting, as it isn't something I'm really clued up about. I have plants that do grow really well considering I only have clip on lights, but my current tank does get a fair bit of natural light. I'd really like to experiment with more plants as I seem to have done ok so far! I'm leaning towards the Fluval as it's 200 litres and slightly cheaper (only ?20, but still cheaper). But it is only 20 litres bigger than the Juwel. The internal filter of the Juwel doesn't worry me as I have always used internal filters, so the filter isn't a factor in deciding. Anyway:

Fluval GLO lighting unit

One Power-Glo Fluorescent Aquarium Tube 30W 91.44cm (36in) T8

One Aqua-Glo Fluorescent Aquarium Tube 30W 91.44cm (36in) T8


Juwel High Lite Light Unit

Juwel High Lite Day, T5 length 895mm, 45 watts

Juwel High Lite Nature, T5 length 895mm, 45 watts,

T5 or T8? 30w or 45w? Which is better?

Can you reply back with your opinion on the product? I have T8 lights on one of my tanks that I really like. I was going to switch my big tank over to T5 but was also considering T8.
