Default Philips aquarium lights

Hi,

went to the Philips website and found out that Philips has a couple of aquarium lights, "Aquasky" and "Aquarelle". Does anyone knows if these are available in singapore?

I do not know if they are any good or worth the buy, saw them in the website and want to find out more


thanks

philips quite a big maker of lights, very reliable also, recently they have alot of new models that assumingly fits the planted tank.

I havent tried philips tubes yet but i think its safe to go wif the brand
But if its more expensive the the existing lighting tubes in the market, then go for the more common ones, wont go wrong.

I would like to try the aquarium lights but the problem is I dont seems to be able to find them, most of the tubes on sale here is for general home lighting. Why can I find a bigger range of Philips and Osram lights products?

osram is not bad, reliable brand.
But Philips seems to have a dedicated light for aquariums which i think should be better.=] ill try it next few months when its time to change my tubes'
