Comments: received the lights in a well packaged and protected box. All four lamps I ordered worked 4.0 as soon as they were installed. The actinic blue is awesome coloration for my corals. I run these lights before, during, and after my halide runs.

Comments: Bought 1 of these in combination with 3 Aquablue+'s and so far am getting good results with the Rose Anemone I purchased these for. The color of the tank is fairly white but even with the 3 to 1 ratio there is good fluoresence in the anemone. If I was not worried about having enough light I would do a 1:1 ratio as that looks really nice but all in all it is working well so far.
