Which Twinstar LED Light is Best For You?

 

Purchasing the perfect LED light for your planted tank is crucial to your scape’s success. That being said, we understand how the process of buying the right aquarium lighting can be overwhelming. With an abundance of brands and types, where do you even start? 


Our answer: Twinstar. This company is globally known for their full spectrum LED lights that will enhance the coloration and bring your tank to life--whether it be a planted aquarium, terrarium, shrimp tank, or fish tank. Twinstar lights come in sleek, minimalist designs that range in price to fit anyone’s budget. Team BP would like to make comparing easier for you. We have put together a breakdown of Twinstar LED lights for you below.


Below is a comparison of the E, S, CA, EA, SA, and SP Twinstar LED lights. We have listed all of the details you need for each model in order to make the right choice for your tank (dimensions, lumen, watts, glass thickness, appropriate tank size recommendations, etc.)


Note: The “A” in the series name means the light is “adjustable.” For example, the EA series is the E light but with legs that adjust in size. The "P" in the series stands for "pendant," which means the light will hang from a hanging bar.
