Comments: I recently switched my Red Sea Max 250 standard lights for 6 so-called 36 inch (they are really more like 34 inches in length) D-D Giesemann Powerchrome 39W bulbs: two AquaBlue+, three Actinic+, and one Aquapink I put in front that makes the whole tank glow. The result is a perfect color mix, which brings out the best in my fish and corals. Everything in my tank is thriving and the tank is even running a bit cooler now. If you want to stick with fluorescent bulbs while LEDs improve and come down in price, these are the ones to get!

Comments: Giesemann are the only bulbs I use. Cannot buy locally so I have to buy online. This is the best site....GREAT price and free shipping . Bulbs can be very costly to ship so I search for the best deal. Received very quickly with no breakage.. I do not need to switch out my bulbs until next month so they have not been tested yet. Could not pass up this up so I ordered early. THANKS FOR THE FREE SHIPPING
