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!

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.

Comments: I received the pure actinic bulb and the Giesemann midday last week. They really make the colors in my tank pop. They are a great pair together and for the money one of the best ways to improve the look of the tank. Also, the packaging of the bulbs was excellent.
