Light plays a crucial role in the life of aquatic organisms and plants. In their natural habitat, sunlight provides the necessary light for plant photosynthesis and regulates the life processes of animals. In an aquarium, lighting serves these vital functions, and therefore, selecting the right lighting and planning the lighting cycle are of utmost importance for the well-being of the aquarium's inhabitants.
Versatile Lighting Options
The Ultra Slim BT aquarium LED lamp offers five different lighting modes, making it suitable for a wide range of open tanks:
SUNNY: This mode emits the strongest light and is ideal for illuminating freshwater aquariums during the day.
DAYBREAK: DAYBREAK mode provides reduced lighting power, about 50% less than SUNNY mode, making it suitable for use after the night or when feeding fish, especially skittish ones.
NIGHT: NIGHT mode creates an atmospheric blue glow that allows you to observe the nighttime activity in your aquarium.
MARINE: This mode is designed for marine tanks and works well for decorative aquariums with fish from Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika.
PLANT: PLANT mode is tailored for planted tanks, stimulating plant growth at all stages, from seedlings to flowering. It's perfect for demanding Dutch-style aquariums with various vegetation.
The Ultra Slim BT can be easily adjusted to fit the dimensions of your aquarium. You can choose from three lamp sizes: 11.8, 23.6, and 35.4 inches (30, 60, and 90 cm), or you can create a custom lighting setup by hanging multiple lamps side by side. The lamp also offers two mounting options: suspension above the aquarium using steel cables or attachment to the tank's edges with an adjustable rack equipped with transparent guides.
Energy Efficiency and Safety
The Ultra Slim BT features 4, 8, or 12 spotlights, each equipped with 38 modern LEDs that are highly efficient (>130lm/W). These LEDs emit significantly more light than traditional fluorescent lamps while consuming approximately 50% less electricity. Additionally, the lamp's passive cooling system efficiently dissipates heat, eliminating the need for extra cooling sources like fans. The lamp operates safely at a low voltage of 24 V, posing no threat to human life or health. It also boasts an IPX7 waterproof rating, ensuring safety even in case of short-term immersion in water.
Apart from its high-quality lighting parameters, the Ultra Slim BT stands out with its modern and minimalist design. Crafted from a single brushed aluminum plate, the lamp is remarkably slim, measuring only 0.7 inches (17 mm) thick, creating a visually lightweight appearance. When mounted above the tank, it gives the impression of levitating, drawing attention to the aquarium's arrangement. The available lighting modes not only support the aquarium's inhabitants but also allow you to set the desired ambiance in the room.
In Harmony with Natural Rhythms
The Ultra Slim BT lamp is designed to replicate natural living conditions in the aquarium environment. With modes like SUNNY, DAYBREAK, and NIGHT, you can recreate a circadian cycle that closely mimics natural light changes. This is crucial for the well-being and development of aquatic life.
Lamp Control via Smartphone and Tablet App
You can control the Ultra Slim BT lamp remotely through the Aquael BT app, which communicates with the lamp via Bluetooth technology on your smartphone or tablet. The app enables you to adjust lighting parameters, such as intensity, color temperature, and lighting duration, to meet the specific needs of your tank. It also supports control of multiple Ultra Slim lamps and allows sharing access with others, with the option to secure the app with a PIN code.
In Harmony with Natural Rhythms
Aquael BT also provides the flexibility to create customized lighting schedules that cater to the unique requirements of your fish and plants. You can program cycles that simulate natural light changes, such as dawn and dusk, with gradual brightness adjustments. These gradual transitions help fish and plants adapt to changing light conditions without stress, promoting their overall well-being.
