Aquarium Light & Accessories

An aquarium light is an important part of any fish tank. The light will help keep your fish healthy while providing any live plants with the correct amount of light so they can grow inside of the tank. Fish love to hide in plants, it makes them feel safe and secure. A good aquarium light will provide your fish with plenty of plant material in which to hide because it will simulate sunlight so that the plants can perform photosynthesis.

People often place plastic plants in their fish tanks to give the fish the illusion of living plants, but this is not as effective as having live plants and a good aquarium light to let them grow. The live plants produce oxygen for the fish and their roots will help break down any waste produced in the tank.

Plants also remove the carbon dioxide from the water, which is released by the fish when they breathe and is also absorbed from the room when the water is exposed to air. Aquarium lights from The LA Shop will give your plants the amount of light they need to thrive and give your fish a day / night cycle that allows them to stay healthy.
