    The lighting unit in my little Rio 125 has finally packed up after about 6 years service. I don’t really think it’s worth spending £55 on a new hood and would prefer to spend a bit more and go for a luminaire. The lighting output from the old Juwel T8 units is not very high after all.

    Therefore can anyone recomend a decent luminaire that will fit this tank. Thanks in advance.

    They’re expensive :/

    Arcadia Overtank Luminaire AF245F T5 80cm (32in) – £172

    The 70cm pendant hanging halides are £300…

    you can buy a T5 unit which fits straight in. Juwel are doing these now, have done for a while

    As richy said – think they are called the juwel Hi-lite? I like the arcadia overtop luminaires but for the same price (or cheaper) you can get a 125W Metal Halide – so thats what I did in my trigon.

    This is the unit you’d need for a Rio 125
    Unit

    You should get the unit for about £55-£60. Warning, the Juwel tubes are expensive but other T5 manufacturers should fit, arcadia for instance.
