Why do you need a light fixture for your aquarium or fish tank? Well, the answer is easy. With an aquarium light you can see and observe your aquarium pets and plants better. Just kidding, or not really. Of course an aquarium light facilitates your daily observation because that’s why you chose an aquarium in the first place. It is just fun to watch the fish and water plants.
The other very important reason why you should have an aquarium light fixture is that the lighting provides vital energy to plants and animals and is essential for an aquarium containing photosynthetic organisms such as plants or anemones. You will see that your fish behavior and physiology is influenced by the lighting. An aquarium light is therefore important for health and well-being of the whole aquarium.
