Comments: This was the first time purchasing Giesemann power chrome T5 high output lights and wish I would have paid the money earlier for these compaired to the crappy Coralife T5's I been purchasing. When I installed the Giesemann I instantly saw my corals come to life like I've never seen them react before compared to the Coralife bulbs I've purchased in the past. Yes, Coralife are cheeper but you get what you pay for!

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I used to use one aqua pink with two aqua blue+ and three actinic blue+ bulbs in my Red Sea Max 250 tank. Now I have a new favorite for where I used to put the aquablue+ bulb--the lagoon blue. Lagoon blue is a stunning new color from D-D Giesemann that puts out great light. My corals and macro algae look happy and it brings out the color of my fish. Best of all, these high output bulbs do not need to be changed as often to maintain your light spectrum as a regular T5 bulb, making them more cost effective. Highly recommended.

Comments: This bulb really makes my phosphorescent corals pop. I run it alongside ATI Coral+, Blue+ and Purple+ bulbs. Although the ATI bulbs also help with phosphorescence, I notice a big difference in the look of the tank when I turn this bulb on and off.
