Interpet launches new LED lighting range to make fish shine and aid plant growth

Leading pet and aquatics company Interpet has launched a new range of energy-efficient LED lighting providing maximum brightness to create a beautiful, healthy aquarium – making fish shine and plants flourish.


Interpet, part of the Central Garden & Pet company, has upgraded its aquarium lighting to create the Eco-Max LED range offering an economical and brighter lighting alternative to T5/T8 lamps.


Adrian Exell, Development and Marketing Manager at Interpet, explains: “The Eco-Max range has just been released, so is brand new to the marketplace and we’re very excited about it, and the benefits it offers for aquarium owners with tropical fish and plants.


“It’s a slim, stylishly designed, range of super bright, yet economical, LED lighting for use on aquariums with both inbuilt white and blue LEDs for day and night modes creating night-light and blue moon options.


“This submersible waterproof system has been devised by us to create a beautiful aquarium for your tropical fish and plants to flourish in. The system is ideal for encouraging and enhancing plant life. It also represents a cost-effective replacement for traditional T8 and T5 fluorescent lighting and metal halide and T5 power compact lighting, or as an upgrade to current LED lit aquariums of any brand. 


“This super bright, yet economical lighting system, is more than 50% brighter than other LED Systems, yet is energy efficient, using a very low wattage.”


The Eco-Max LEDs are a spotlight source, which bounces off any surface water movement to create a ripple effect in the aquarium, stimulating healthy plant growth without encouraging algae.


The range of six LED light units can be retro-fitted onto any aquarium model from 20cm up 130cm in size and uses multipurpose brackets. It can also be fitted to the aquarium hood or submerged using suckers.   


The Eco-Max lighting range is available in six sizes from 20cm up to 115cm:

  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 20cm – SSP £22.99
  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 36cm – SSP £29.99
  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 45cm – SSP £39.99
  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 60cm – SSP £59.99
  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 90cm - SSP £69.99
  • Eco-Max Tropical LED 115cm – SSP £79.99
