I ordered 4 T5's for my Giesemann 6' fixture. Unfortunately the delievery service 'brown' completely shattered all 4 bulbs in the shipping container.. :( I called up customer service and explained the issue and with no questions asked, a fresh set was immediately sent out to me FREE...and the packaging was double reinforced this time!! I was very impressed with the customer service with this company and this is one more reason I am a loyal customer.
The bulb looks great with my other ATI's (Blue+, PP, CP) and the corals respond with very pleasing color and growth! This bulb is very similar to the KZ New Gen which is also a great bulb...but you get this one for 1/3 less!

Can't say much for this one. First bulb delivered had bum connectors on one end. The replacement they sent (without problems and quick) was broken in half. Although I threw in the towel on this one, ati bulbs are great and brs is a good company. Better luck to every else!
Solid bulb By Andrew on 7/31/2013

Definitely a must have in any T5 user's repertoire. Puts out incredible PAR and makes all colors stand out. I would be careful not to run too many as it could wash out blues a little.
Great bulb if you have a bank of six or more. By Michael on 7/19/2013

I keep switching things around with this bulb. I think i've settled on keeping it in the middle of my 6 bank light. I also run a purple plus with it, and while I like having both it is a bit purple. Replacing it with a blue plus is too blue for me though and with a 10k its too white! I just can't make up my mind.
Great bulb though, it brought out some color in my Tracyphyllia I didnt know was there, and for some reason my toadstool opens up twice a big since I added this bulb. So for now it is staying in.
Excellent lamp! By Bill on 6/7/2013

I recently purchased and installed this lamp in my ATI PM 10x54w fixture. WOW! I love this lamp! I have since removed my Aquablue Special lamps in favor of this one in combination with Blue+ and Purple+ lamps.
If you're considering this lamp, don't hesitate buy it!

WOW ... My tank got nicknamed the purple people eater ....lol... I was running 2 coral pus and 2 420 atinics ... My pink xiena was camo you wouldent even notice it with all the purple light ... So ! I removed the atinics and am now running 2 10000 k bulbs and the 2 coral plus .. IT IS BEAUTIFUL.!! Don't know if I need the atinics or not but with this setup I have noticed soft coral groth in 3 days that wasent there before .. Im guessing this is because of the extra PAR.. overal great bulb but don't run it buy It's self IMO...

I have 2 of the Coral+ and they look so nice with the other ATI bulbs. The colors on my corals really pop and look so much better. Will purchase again in the future. Great price too!

I have used many different T5 bulbs, and after reviews, and forum research. I decided to try ATI... Since the first build buy a year and and a half ago. I don't buy anything else ....ATI for me !

Whether you're going with an all-T5 setup or like me with T5 + metal halides in the same fixture, you & your livestock should be very pleased with these. Several months back it was time for bulb replacement, tried the Coral Plus & really liked it alot, coral just love it & helps provide a very pleasing light to the tank when paired with another ATI T5 of different spectrum.
Must have bulb By Frederick on 12/16/2012
Frederick would recommend this product to a friend
I ordered two of these bulbs to replace two that were getting old in my fixture. I would say the temp is in between the aquablue special and the blue plus. I would definitely say that you can run this as a stand alone bulb since it brings out the reds as well as a nice color temp for any tank. I do not run this as stand alone bulbs since I would have to replace the majority of my bulbs (fixture is a 14 bulb t5ho).
Great T5's By MATTHEW on 9/24/2012

Very impressed with these bulbs. I find the color to be right in between the Blue Plus and Aquablue Special bulbs. I'd be satisfied running solely these bulbs over a mixed reef.
