ATI True Actinic 03 T5HO Fluorescent Bulbs Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Produces a violet-blue light that is designed to maximize fluorescence in capable corals and make livestock colors pop.

ATI T5 Bulbs have been at the forefront of T5 bulb technology since there 1st introduction in 2000. Since then, ATI Engineers have continued to research and develop ways to manufacture an even better T5 Bulb.

ATI`s NEW GENERATION of T5 Bulbs continue this tradition of excellence. Unlike other brands, including other German-made T5 bulbs, ATI T5 Bulbs use the latest advances in phosphors (phosphors are the stuff inside the bulbs that emit light) and manufacturing techniques to produce bulbs with higher output, better coloration and more stability. By using better quality phosphors and improved manufacturing techniques, the new versions of the ATI Blue Plus and ATI Aquablue Special have better output and improved color over the previous generations. And as you all know, ATI was proud to release the all new ATI PURPLE PLUS Bulb, which was developed to replace the ATI Pro Color. Lastly, while again keeping the hobbyist in mind, ATI bulbs are also very affordable making them a great value and a preferred choice of experienced hobbyists throughout the world.

Length (including pins): 22 1/8”

Available Colors:

Aquablue Special: Combines the properties of a full-spectrum bulb with an elevated blue color peak producing a bulb with an approximate color temperature of 15000K.

Blue Plus: Combines the properties of a blue bulb (approximately 460nm) with an actinic bulb (approximately 420nm) producing an intense blue light with high PAR numbers and a light spectrum that encourages both bluing in SPS corals and fluorescence in capable corals.

Coral Plus:Combines the properties of a Blue Plus (~50%) + Aquablue Special (~40%) + Purple Plus (~10%) producing a bulb with an approximate color temperature of 15000K+. Appears cool, crisp white to the eye.

Purple Plus: Combines the properties of a full spectrum bulb with strong red and blue components producing a bulb with excellent color-rendition that works very well for bringing out the pinks, purples and reds in an aquarium.

True Actinic: Produces a violet-blue light that is designed to maximize fluorescence in capable corals and make livestock colors pop.

Comments: I didn't mention to my wife that I replaced the bulbs. She walked into the room and said the fish tank looked great today and asked if I cleaned it or changed something. Everything looks more violet which adds great character.

Comments: After 28 years of being an aquarist I found the only bulbs I'll ever use until I switch to LED. I have a 4 bulb 36" HO T5 fixture. I have switched out bulbs every 4-6 months for years. Recently, after a bit of research, I purchased 4 ATI bulbs. OH MY GOD!! is all I can say. These bulbs are everything I read and more. All my corals responded to the new bulbs in hours!! The color range is exquisite, and the price is very reasonable. The bulb combination I am using is one each of the following: Coral Plus, Blue Plus, Purple Plus and True Actinic. I will recomend these bulbs to anyone who wants an alternative to LED!!

Comments: I just replaced my older bulbs tis past weekend and so far am very happy with my lights.My light fixture uses 4 lights, so purchased 2 of these and two of the ATI Blue Plus lights. My acropora who, I did not realize at the time, was starting to lose his flourescent green and change to brown is starting to color up again - just within 1 day!I will try and remember to write in again when I reach the end of the bulb's life, but so far I am very happy with them, and with websites delivery of them.
