Very nice color

I use two of the Super Actinic VHO bulbs on my larger reef tank and I really love the color they put out. The corals show off so nicely under these lamps, it really is incredible. Great bulbs.

VHO SET UP

I have not used led lights yet but have seen many of them over reef tanks and to this day I have not see anything that will make the colors in a tank pop like they do when you use a set of VHO lights with a icecap ballast.

VHO Actinic

These bulbs are performing nicely. The spectrum is leaning toward 420 nm on a coralife ballast. The intensity is sufficient. The corals are really flourescing nicely. I am also pleased with the service offered by Marine Depot. Not only was the product delivered quickly, correspondence was excellent.

Coral Colors POP!!

Bulbs arrived very well packaged. I use 2 of them to give dusk/dawn effect over my 180 reef. I leave them on even with my 14k halides. When the halides turn off in the evening the colors of all my corals really pop and look amazing.
