Comments: A very noticeable pink-purple cast. Not as strong as their Aquasun, though. Best to use only a minimum of these, and get a different bulb with a more crisp blue-white color as you main bulb.

Comments: I run 8 of these over a tank 120g reef tank. They are great bulbs and the shipping is par excellence... The warning, replace them every 12 months or suffer algae problems. These shift spectrum. At the first sign of red or dark green algae change bulbs. Expert ish :) Dan

Comments: So far I am happy with this light I have a purple tint to my tank but I'm unsure if it's these bulbs or the actinic (blue)

Comments: It is too early to tell about the performance or life of these bulbs. I liked the color of my old bulbs better. These are kinda pinkish. I might try an extra Actinic blue instad of the 50/50 mix I am running.
