Comments: received the lights in a well packaged and protected box. All four lamps I ordered worked 4.0 as soon as they were installed. The actinic blue is awesome coloration for my corals. I run these lights before, during, and after my halide runs.

Fantastic bulb! Product Review by Matty (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I have only had these bulbs for a couple of days and my tank looks incredible, i only wish there where more than 5 stars, it deserves way more than 5. Just ordered the AquaBlue+ so we'll see how they pair up, my 10k just aren't cutting it with the color spectrum that i had hoped to achieve. I would strongly recommend this bulb!!

So Far so Good Product Review by Greg Jones (Posted on 8/17/10)

Excellent!

Comments: Bought 1 of these in combination with 3 Aquablue+'s and so far am getting good results with the Rose Anemone I purchased these for. The color of the tank is fairly white but even with the 3 to 1 ratio there is good fluoresence in the anemone. If I was not worried about having enough light I would do a 1:1 ratio as that looks really nice but all in all it is working well so far.
