Daylight is beneficial for living organisms, and that includes aquatic life. Exposure to natural light provided by Solatube Daylighting Systems enables aquatic environments to receive the full spectrum visible light that promotes a healthy tank habitat. At the same time, the majority of heat-producing infrared (IR) and damaging ultraviolet (UV) light is filtered out, which significantly reduces heat gain and minimizes aquatic environment cleaning and maintenance.
Since most microorganisms requires UV light to propagate, the use of Solatube products as a source for daytime fish tank illumination decreases the amount of cleaning and maintenance typically required of fish enthusiasts. Additionally, the use of Solatube OptiView® Decorative Fixtures creates a natural sparkle effect similar to that produced when daylight reflects off the water’s surface of oceans and lakes.
