Unbeatable Performance

Giesemann’s brand new AURORA-HYBRID LED/T5 is the ultimate aquatic lighting fixture.

"It combines control, flexibility, energy efficient high spec optic-free LED lighting plus the overlapping wide spectral range and even distribution capabilities of T5s."

No more hot-spots or shaded coral branches. This fixture greatly reduced risk of localized bleaching under high intensity focal points. Corals under the AURORA are literally bathed in light from a wide range of overlapping angles and multiple light sources to promote optimum health and color across the entire colony.

The AURORA-HYBRID is equipped with an Active Cooling System that works to maintain both the lamps and LED’s at optimal working temperatures and ensure long term stability with improved lifespan.


Unrivaled 24-hour Controllable Lighting

Giesemann Futura Software

The AURORA-HYBRID uses the class leading Futura Control Software to produce realistic sunrise-sunset effects, fully programmable day cycle light scenarios, cloud transitions, and real-time moonlight simulations while being easy to manipulate from a simple yet incredibly-flexible group of programing features. 

Limitless Color and Intensity Control 

Each 75watt LED group features three independently-programmable LED channels with up to 1440 available set points per 24 hour phase. Each channel is capable of 0-100% dimming. 

LED color channels include

  • Full Spectrum White
  • Blue
  • Royal Blue
  • Red
  • Violet- TRU-UV sub 400nm
  • All LED’s are zero-loss 120deg Optic-Free 5w CREE X-Series controlled by high performance linear drivers.


High Output Dimmable T5s

Each T5 bulb features a CAD designed Individual Parabolic Reflectors made from high gloss aluminum alloy with a 99% reflective capacity delivering increased light transference up to 150% that of standard square type non glossy reflectors used in many alternate brands.

Each pair of T5 lamps is independently controllable via built in electronic HF ballasts with a dimming capacity from 1-100 % and fully integrated into the Bluetooth control system. Light from the T5 banks crosses over and blends with the LED boards to deliver a seamlessly mixed light field from a wide range of angles.

Balancing T5 Power and Running Costs Against Light Output from the LED Array

"Ongoing running costs in respect to replacements lamps
for the user were also an important factor."

A 4-lamp T5 platform backed by the high output LED boards was chosen to offer the best balance between light availability and long term running costs. The AURORA-HYBRID also features a higher ratio of LEDs to T5s compared to other competing fixtures that use a higher ratio of T5s to LEDs with a much higher replacement and annual running cost.

Stylish Design

The sleek and sophisticated fixture is highly durable and made from salt water resistant anodized aluminum with stylish powder coating in 3 different colors. All components, except for the LED power supply, are enclosed inside the fixture housing.


Intuitive control software for your MAC, Windows PC or any Android device makes adjusting your AURORA-HYBRID comfortable and simple. It comes equipped with Bluetooth technology, thereby avoiding the need for problematic online web servers or Wi-Fi connections and router set-ups.

Plug & Play

With the integrated controller, there is NOTHING more to buy.

Excellent Build-Quality

All components are manufactured and assembled completely in Germany by Giesemann Aquaristik.

Quiet & Cool Operation

Runs perfectly cool and produces virtually no noise. 

Incredible Value for Money

The AURORA-HYBRID offers a perfect high-quality German-manufactured lighting solution at an incredible price compared to other aquarium fixtures. Giesseman never compromises on reliability or technical detail when making the AURORA-HYBRID the most cost effective LED/T5 hybrid system available.

Mounting options: Adjustable suspension kit included. Tank mount sold separately.


Our recommendation for a "standard" configuration for the AURORA T-5 colors would be the following:

2 x actinic-blue; 1 x aquablue-coral; 1 x super-purple
