Combines the properties of a blue bulb (approximately 460nm) with an actinic bulb (approximately 420nm) producing an intense blue light with high PAR numbers and a light spectrum that encourages both bluing in SPS corals and fluorescence in capable corals.

ATI T5 Bulbs have been at the forefront of T5 bulb technology since there 1st introduction in 2000. Since then, ATI Engineers have continued to research and develop ways to manufacture an even better T5 Bulb.

ATI`s NEW GENERATION of T5 Bulbs continue this tradition of excellence. Unlike other brands, including other German-made T5 bulbs, ATI T5 Bulbs use the latest advances in phosphors (phosphors are the stuff inside the bulbs that emit light) and manufacturing techniques to produce bulbs with higher output, better coloration and more stability. By using better quality phosphors and improved manufacturing techniques, the new versions of the ATI Blue Plus and ATI Aquablue Special have better output and improved color over the previous generations. And as you all know, ATI was proud to release the all new ATI PURPLE PLUS Bulb, which was developed to replace the ATI Pro Color. Lastly, while again keeping the hobbyist in mind, ATI bulbs are also very affordable making them a great value and a preferred choice of experienced hobbyists throughout the world.

Length (including pins): 45 3/4”

Available Colors:

Aquablue Special: Combines the properties of a full-spectrum bulb with an elevated blue color peak producing a bulb with an approximate color temperature of 15000K.

Blue Plus: Combines the properties of a blue bulb (approximately 460nm) with an actinic bulb (approximately 420nm) producing an intense blue light with high PAR numbers and a light spectrum that encourages both bluing in SPS corals and fluorescence in capable corals.

Coral Plus:Combines the properties of a Blue Plus (~50%) + Aquablue Special (~40%) + Purple Plus (~10%) producing a bulb with an approximate color temperature of 15000K+. Appears cool, crisp white to the eye.

Purple Plus: Combines the properties of a full spectrum bulb with strong red and blue components producing a bulb with excellent color-rendition that works very well for bringing out the pinks, purples and reds in an aquarium.

True Actinic: Produces a violet-blue light that is designed to maximize fluorescence in capable corals and make livestock colors pop.

Yes, this is a blue colored bulb but will probably look different from what you have if it is not the same exact brand. First, be sure you are choosing the correct length and wattage. The color combination you choose thereafter can vary drastically based on personal preference and of course, the needs of the corals or plants inside your tank. Email us directly customercare@marinedepot.com to provide some more details about your tank and we will help you choose the correct bulbs.

Excellent bulb for Saltwater Aquariums

reviewerbadge
PROS
gives good color on inital start for for service life of bulb as you get closer to one year and algae starts, check your chemistry and if that is all in range then time to change the bulbs as the PAR must have gone down & black rings around bulb base signifying its time to change
CONS
I would like them to last at least 18months before having to swap out....
REVIEW
Excellent blue bulb --- doesnt wash out colors, but does need to combined with a Coral Plus to lessen the blue effect...grows mushrooms and caulerpa like weeds.

Price & durability (i.e # of months between bulb changes)
REVIEW
Very good quality bulbs, nice blue light with great par. Mixed with Coral+ (equal #'s of 3 Blue+/ 4 Coral+, 2 purple+) produced a light with a slight blue hue. Replacing the purple+ with another Blue+ provided a crisp blue water appearance with good color rendition of the corals and fish.
