Comments: I ordered 2 Coralife Colormax Fluorescent T5 Lamp. I had previously ordered these from another company online and the bulbs arrived broken. Not suprised because of how they were packed. Your bulbs arrived with in 4 days and in perfect condition. They were also shipped in a solid, unbreakable tube. In the time it tokk to order and receive the bulbs from you, the other company was still couldn't figure out how they could replace the broken bulbs they shipped. I especially liked being able to tack the package. Keep up the good work. Thank You, David, NJ

Comments: This bulb really brings out the beauty of my tank. In addition to 6700K and 10000K bulbs, my fish and plants really "pop." Can't say how well it grow plants but since it's described as being full spectrum, it shouldn't hurt plant growth.
