 Hi  guys,  I  was  thinking  about  lights  for  my  new  planted  2  footer.
 
 Yesterday  ,  I  went  to  my  LFS  and  they  were  trying  to  push  me  HITACHI  tube  lights  with  label  '  Aquarium  light  '.
 
 The  guy  said  that  they  are  using  this  light  in  their  100  g  planted  display  tank  (  its  really  beautiful  )  and  said  that  it's  best  for  my  tank  size  too.  I  have  been  using  one  of  these  in  a  non-planted  tank  of  mine..  so  I  cant  really  tell  if  they  are  of  use  !
 
 So  is  it  anything  really  good  ,  or  just  a  gimmick  ?  
 
 It  produces  a  pinkish  light  from  it.  The  fish's  colors  also  look  good  under  it.
 
 And  the  charge  is  Rs.  8X  for  each.

 The  Hitachi  pink  light  tubes  are  put  to  good  use  for  Arowanas,  flowerhorns  etc  to  bring  red  colors  of  the  fish.  
 
 Most  display  tanks  which  house  Arowanas  have  the  Hitachi  pink  tube  both  at  the  bottom  (externally)  and  at  the  top.  The  outcome  is  fanstastic!

 Dear  Neel
 I  also  asserted  the  same  view  as  above.  It  best  match  with  Gold  fish  aquariums  andBlue  one  for  marine  aquariums,

 Neel
 
 Aquarium  lights  like  Hitachi  or  Osram  Fluora  emits  most  part  of  their  light  spectrum  in  red  and  blue  zone.  Hence  they  appear  less  bright  and  pinkish  to  human  eyes.  Human  eyes  recognize  brightness  or  lumen   more  to  the  green  spectrum.
 
 You  definitely  can  use  these  lights  for  your  planted  set  up.  However  it  is  always  better  to  combine  these  lamps  along  with  full  spectrum  lamps.  This  will  creat  more  natural  lighting  in  your  aquarium.
 
 Regards
