Regency / Regal T8 Lighting Unit - (53501)
Aqua One have, over time, revised the lighting set up supplied with many larger aquariums from standard 1" diameter T8 fluorescent to higher output T5 tubes. These are not interchangeable so its important to make sure you order the right ones.
There are two models of lighting unit for the Regal (and Regency) 100 which accept different sizes of lighting tube, so it's extremely important to ensure that you order the correct one. The model listed here is the later model 53501 - T8 Lighting Unit from Aqua One which uses the 1" diameter T8 (36 inch) lighting tubes.
Have a quick look at the tubes you have - if they are 1" in diameter they are standard T8 tubes while, if they are around half of this, they will be T5. If all else fails measure the distance between the end contact pins on the tubes - T8 are 8mm apart and T5 are 5mm apart.

Change to specification for Regency 100 Lighting Units
All new light units for the Regency 100 are only available in black. The older veneered versions are no longer produced as they were less cosmetically durable. Please order the correct unit which corresponds with the existing light unit you already own as T8 and T5 versions can be slightly different lengths and are not guaranteed to be interchangeable.
