Comments: I am really pleased with the light. I have it combined with Power compacts and Metal Halides, but like how it helps with the blue coloration.

Best T-5's Yet!

Comments: Superior to any other T-5's that I've used. The internal reflector really help kick as much light into the tank as possible. I still use an IceCap reflector with these however. Currently I run (from front to back, all UVL V-HOR's) Super Actinic, 75/25, Super Actinic, and White Actinic. Color mix is superb and my polyps have never extended better! Very impressed! If you have an IceCap 660, these bulbs will kick out between 55 and 60 watts. SUPER INTENSE! Say goodbye to your halides and your chiller!

Comments: but is not very blue, cant really keep up one on one with the 10k's It does look like more actual thought went into it other than just making it super blue. If you like the color "pop" then you might want to try them paired with the 12k

Comments: Picked up some of these as a replacement for the stock actinics that came with Current USA's nova extreme pro. The color is excellent and the difference is notable from the stock bulbs. As a truer actinic, they peak at 420nm rather than the 460nm that Current's stock bulbs peak at.

Comments: I have tried different brands and these give the best color enhancement of your corals and they seemed to really like the color spectrum they produce That is why I would buy them again when it comes time to replace again.
