I've used these on all 3 of my Juwel tanks. They just about double the amount of light being delivered into your tank and reduce the amount of light spill out of the tank into the room. The plastic clips that secure the reflector to the lamp will eventually become brittle and break, but Juwel sell replacements at a fairly minimal price. Recommended.

Maybe a dumb question, but do these work in most standard T8 fixtures or are these for JUWEL fixtures only?

They clip directly to the tube, both T5 and T8 clips are included. So provided that you have enough clearance above the tube, they should work.
