If you constantly improve on what is good, you can achieve perfection. An impressive example of this is the new generation of Giesemann  Moonlights which combines metal halide illumination and T5 fluorescent lamps.

The moon affects not only the ocean tides. Science is forever coming up with new findings on just how much it influences life in the water. Only by understanding the interactions involved are we humans able to explain many behavioural patterns exhibited by the inhabitants of the seas. As developers and manufacturers with scientific aspirations, Giesemann lichttechnik have used these findings to develop a light that introduces moonlight into the home aquarium.

The Giesemann moonlight, our flagship model, simulates natural living conditions day and night, allowing you to observe your fish in the moonlight. Moonrise and moonset, and even the phases of the moon, pose no problem for the complex microprocessor control. Cloud simulation was even thought of. As the moonlight lamp requires a mere five watts, the Giesemann Moonlight is incredibly energy efficient. The amount of light emitted corresponds to that of the natural moon, ensuring plants and fish still have their period of rest. The perfectly designed details commonly associated with this light have been augmented by continous, rapid-action height adjustement and a flexible spiral cable on the european model.

Special UV filters protect the occupants of the aquarium against excessive radiation levels. The user-friendly display provides information on all settings in as many as four languages. It evens tells you when the various fluorescent and metal halide lamps need to be replaced. T5 fluorescent lamp technology, featuring 0.63in tubes and electronic ballast, offers a marked increase in lighting performance.
