To bring out the best in the coloring of your plants, fish and corals, you need a powerful lamp that can highlight pigmentation in the best way possible. Thus, it`s important for you to remember that normal household lamps are not enough for an aquarium. You need a lamp that is especially made for aquariums, such as the ATI 48-inch 54W Purple Plus T5 HO Fluorescent Bulb from Pet Store
From the product name itself, you can tell right away that this lamp has a high output, which is a necessary characteristic of lamps that can simulate daytime sunlight. Also, this lamp contains phosphors of the highest quality so you can be sure that each lamp can emit bright light in spite of its small compact size.
The best thing about this lamp is that it is quite affordable. You don`t have to spend big bucks just to bring out the beauty of your aquarium.
The ATI 48-inch 54W Purple Plus T5 HO Fluorescent Bulb gives off purplish tints. The blue and red components of the lamp play off each other to produce a soft and purple undertone that works really well with color rendition. This purple hue is best for aquariums
with red, pink or purple as the dominant color.

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.
