Default Tanning

Arcadia have produced specialised products for enriching the colouration of Arowanas
Firstly a T8 fluorescent lamp which mimics strong sunlight, emitting both UVA and UVB for natural colour development of the fish. This is a natural way to develop colour without harming the fish
With the Red Arowana Lamp Red Arowana develop a natural deeper red colour
and with the Golden Crown Arowana Lamp Golden Crown Arowana will develop a natural deep golden colour on the top of their heads and along their back
Reflectors are available to match the lamps

Red Arowana Light
Code Watt Length Diameter UV-A UV-B Reflector*
FAW30 30W 36″/900mm T8-26mm 27% 5% ALRS24
FAW36 36W 48″/1200mm T8-26mm 27% 5% ALRS39

Golden Crown Arowana Light
Code Watt Length Diameter UV-A UV-B Reflector*
FAWG30 30W 36″/900mm T8-26mm 30% 6% ALRS24
FAWG36 36W 48″/1200mm T8-26mm 30% 6% ALRS39

Alternatively we can offer a complete lighting unit including lamp, tube with integral reflector and ballast with alternative length mains leads - the Arowana T8 light fitting set.
It is a unique, submersible, T8 fluorescent fitting. The UV transmissive lens material allows UV radiation from an Arcadia Arowana lamp to pass through the clear portion of the tube. When used with the Arowana lamp this replicates the natural exposure of the fish to the UVA and UVB in daylight.
It also allows fish to develop a richer colour than they would under normal artificial lighting.
• UV Transmissive lamp tube
• High performance co-extruded reflector built in to tube
• Remote ballast box
• Designed specifically for the new Arcadia Arowana Lamp
• Includes Arowana Lamp

Hopefully this new product will help many Arowana enthusiasts to improve the health and appearance of these magnificent fish

How does uva uvb travel through the glass to have any benefit to the aro? In reptilian keeping, only mesh or grilles are used to allow full spectrum onto the reptiles. Similarly for aro, the light source has to be direct. But the question is does the aro require uva uvb for growth n development? Are fishes running on the same biological platform as reptiles? Don't understand, any kind soul to enlighten me pls?

Hi
The average useful life of these lamps is 6000 to 8000 hours so at 8 hours a day you should be ok changing the lamps every couple of years

Sorry for the delay in replying - some of the questions require multiple disciplinary inputs from the laboratory and factory
Using the D3 lamp is probably not a good idea as the lamp has some proportion of the phosphors that are used in our Original Tropical lamp and those are designed, amongst other things, for photosynthesis and I doubt the promulgation of algaes is something desired in an Arowana aquarium and the way the colours are rendered in the D3 lamp means that the appearance of the aquatope will appear unnatural. Also the amounts of UV-A and UV-B are proportionate to the requirements of the particular fish whilst the reptile lamps emit more light in the UV-B spectrum. In short the Arowana lamps are specifically engineered for arowana aquaria.

Hope this helps

Paul

Default uvb 12%

Hi, may i know the 12% uvb emitted by Reptile D3 lamp is much more suitable for intensifying the red colour of red aros?

Just a feedback, the plastic casing tends to break easily especially after long periods of use of the tanning lamp. Anyway to improve on this?
Hi
It is always a problem using any form of plastic with UV as the radiation eventually breaks down the plastic. The alternative is to use quartz but this is quite fragile and the last thing one wants is the outer tube to break under water. It is also expensive and not easy to get a good fitting/quartz seal in a way that would be aesthetically pleasing in an aquarium.
We do however offer replacement tubes: the C011 (900mm) and C012 (1200mm) prices and availability from your dealer
