ATI 48 Inch 54W Aquablue Special T5HO Fluorescent Bulb Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Light bulbs are the primary source of artificial light everywhere. Whether you’re in land, sea or even in the aquarium, light bulbs are used to illuminate dark places.

If you’re looking for light bulbs for your aquarium then try the ATI Aquablue Special Fluorescent Bulb Pet Store. This bulb has been intricately engineered and designed by researchers to produce great results. It has more phosphorous content and manufactured to produce bulbs with higher power, output and stability.

A lot of colors are available for this product: blue, purple, violet-blue and the combination of the spectrum. For bluish color light, it is designed with a temperature at around 15,000 Kelvin. The product is designed to give you maximum lighting capacity with its cheap price. Its efficiency is unmatched compared to other fluorescent light bulbs and because it is a product of newer technology, we are sure that this product will last longer than your regular light bulbs.

Although the ATI fluorescent light bulb is safe for everyday use; take note that when installing the product, ask for help because you are dealing with electricity. And electricity combined with water is not a very good idea. It can cause electrocution or at worse, it can lead to death.

Length (including pins): 45 3/ 4”

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.

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

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.

Comments: light is as described - a bit whiter than the coral plus, but that was what I wanted in my 72" 12bulb T5 fixture, Previously used 4 coral plus and the tank seemed a bit dim. Now with 2 Coral Plus, 2 Aquablue Specials ,2 purple plus & 6 Blue plus - I think we found the sweet spot in the tank for lighting. NO Coral burning/bleaching note...

Comments: This is a really good lamp, very bright white with a blue tint. Holds up well over time even when over driven with a 660 ballast. I also use the ATI Blue plus, Purple Plus and Actinics.

Comments: My tank is 75 gallon my fixture is a 48 inch 6 bulb orbit fixture about 6 years old. I also use 8 power bright led not sure of the wattage.This is my second set of ati bulbs i use one purple plus,3 blue plus and 2 aquablue special.My old bulbs were about 16 months old. I change all the bulbs at once since my fixture is getting older and less handling the better.i shorten the light hours on the tank for a week or so and have never had any problems with coral adjustment. i have been contemplating switching to led but im sort of confused and reluctant about what i will need to equal my current light output which i am very happy with.I have used T5 bulbs from other companies both more and less expensive .I feel the ATI bulb has by far out shined the other companies.

Comments: I love this bulb. I use it with 2 ATI Blue Plus and one purple. Also used it with 3 Blue Plus bulbs. With the 3 Blue Plus and 1 Aquablue corals grew great but I changed and added the Purple to remove some of the blue. ATI's bulbs have given me the most growth for only having 4 48" bulbs in my 120 reef. I will not use anything else.

Comments: ATI bulbs are very good, The aqua blue specials have more of a white spectrum than a blue, I wouldn't go any more white than this bulb, if your looking for blue go with the Blue+ which will really bring out the greens and yellows, and if you want your reds to pop out get the Fiji pink... I have a 6 bulb fixture and running 3 Blue+, 2 Aquablue Specials, and 1 Fiji Pink. and I think this is the perfect balance of blue/white.. All my colors are popping out and the tank never looked better!

Comments: These lights give my tank a great look, and they are much brighter than the other lights I was using. The only thing I could say needs improvement is the pricing.
