Why does BRS recommend this?

ATI has been some of the most sought after bulbs in the reef aquarium hobby.  With their bright crisp colors, ATI are our number one choice when it comes to T5 bulbs.  With ATI bulbs you can use a single color on its own or you can mix and match to make the ultimate spectrum. 

The ATI AquaBlue Special combines the properties of a blue bulb and full spectrum daylight bulb producing a color temperature of approximately 12000K. Great as a stand-alone bulb or in combination with an ATI Blue Plus or an ATI True Actinic 03


BRS Note: The ATI AquaBlue Special is one of the most popular white bulbs. Has just a hint of blue.

Product Questions

Looking to upgrade my bulbs and looking at the ati bulbs I have the aquatic life 12 bulb fixture. What would be the best set with bulb colors for my tank. No sps In the tank.
Question by: Aaron on Feb 25, 2019, 8:40 PM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out with your question. I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.
Bulb combinations are largely dependent upon personal preference. I really like this post by ATI on Reef2Reef to help decide the best option:
For a 12 bulb set up, I would just double the 6 bulb recommendation.
Let us know if you have any other questions!

Can this light be used in planted tropical freshwater aquariums?
Question by: Ronnie on Jan 29, 2016, 10:36 AM
Great question,
Unfortunately we are not the best judge for freshwater planted and cannot verify the beneficial growth. Most planted tanks will use a spectrum in the 6500K setting. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
