Color - a rich turquoise blue approximating to 16-17000 Kelvin - can be used as a stand alone tube or mixed with other colors within the range.
The turquoise and white spectrum is the perfect complement with the ACTINIC BLUE or the AQUABLUE CORAL PowerChrome lamps.
T5 lighting has been a staple in the hobby with the ability to fine tune the spectrum of the fixture with different bulbs. Many successful reef tanks have used T5 bulbs as their primary light source. A mix of actinic and daylight bulbs will fill most fixtures however with all of the different options if you wish to bring out certain colors in corals or fish, there is usually a bulb that will help with that. T5 lighting is good for most tanks up to about 2 feet deep.
Tip: By keeping your water crystal clear will help increase the light penetration into the tank.

Not the color I was expecting By Mark on 12/4/2015Mark would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this bulb expecting a turquoise color. However, it does not look turquoise to me. It looks white. I gave it 3 stars because I didn't want a white bulb. If I wanted white I would have ordered aquablue coral.
