- T5 Coral Plus - ATI
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.
Great stand-alone bulb just introduced by ATI to stimulate coral growth. This bulb’s color spectrum falls between the Aquablue Special and the Blue Plus. This white lamp has a higher blue part to enhance the fluorescent pigments in your corals while still having some peaks of red and green.
Only ordered a bulb to see the shipping package. Curiosity satisfied. By ChuckD76 on 5/31/2018ChuckD76 would recommend this product to a friendI've been using the Coral Plus along with Blue Plus for a few months now at the recommendation of a fellow reefer. It works.
This review is about the shipping package though.
I can get bulbs from my lfs but I was just curious how BRS would ship them. I had nightmares of broken glass until I saw "the tube."
Pretty nifty really, a poster/picture tube with a round foam insert that has cutouts for the bulbs box. No chance of breakage.
ATI bulbs are the best By Justin on 4/25/2018Justin would recommend this product to a friendATI coral plus, combine with blue plus bulbs make acropora happy! Best T5's on the market! Buy with confidence
Positive By Joseph on 4/13/2018Joseph would recommend this product to a friendI replaced 2 of 4 blue+ bulbs with 2 coral plus and it really helped with the windex look!
Great Lights By Brett on 3/31/2018Brett would recommend this product to a friendI love the color these give my SPS tank. Not to mention the par ratings are great.
good By alex on 11/26/2017alex would recommend this product to a friendI read reviews saying how the bulb is pretty white and I wish I would've listened. I turned off the white channel on my chinese boxes and with the coral plus and blue plus bulbs I added it's still a little white for my taste. When I change my bulb I'll probably get something different. That being said, if you have a six bulb I would definitely put one of these in the mix
Great Spectrum, good output. Great Shipping By Chris on 10/25/2017Chris would recommend this product to a friendShipped fast and secure, BRS took care of the customer and the ATI bulbs are great spectrum and growing coral well!
Great Bulb By Andrew on 3/4/2017Andrew would recommend this product to a friendI recently changed all my bulbs and decided to try this one out in my bulb combo. The bulb puts out a lot of light and is a pleasing color that brings an additional pop to the colors of your corals.
Great Light By R. Mac on 2/8/2017R. Mac would recommend this product to a friendI have been using these bulbs for over 8 years. I get tons of growth on all of my corals.
Good booster light. By Dr. Zoidburg on 10/28/2016Dr. Zoidburg would recommend this product to a friendI used this one to brighten up the tank and as a par booster for around noon time. I thought because in nature it happens like that, that it would be a good idea. So far positive results.
Good noon time light. By Dr. Zoidburg on 10/28/2016Dr. Zoidburg would recommend this product to a friendUsed this as a booster to turn on at noon time. It really brightens up the tank. Ups the par right when nature would. I figured it would be a good idea, and the results have been positive.
AWESOME By DHK on 9/22/2016DHK would recommend this product to a friendGreat price....high quality light! Did a 50/50 with this tube and Blue Plus on my 6-tube fixture.. Very Happy.. Shipping was fast and even if the carrier tossed them 50 feet to my front door they would withstand the ride. They took a lot of time, thought and expense shipping these babies!
Good Light By bostoncloverleaf on 8/20/2016bostoncloverleaf wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGood light. It has its own purpose. I wanted to try it next to my KZ Coral Light II lights. They look good together and all my corals like these lights. So, what else can I say.
20L 4bulb T5HO. What would be the desired mix of bulbs to provide the desired lighting for color and growth of softies, lps and a few sps?
We recommend the Ati Blue Plus and Aquablue Special as the main bulbs. In many cases we select 2 of these bulbs each for great coverage. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I have a 265gl tank 31in high converting to just fish doing away with the MH what do you suggest for a new lightning system its 7ft long x24in
I would just go with a couple of LEDs like Kessil or a 4 bulb T5 fixture and put blue plus in all the bulbs. would give a great spectrum and blends very well.
What Kelvin rating is this bulb?
Thank you for reaching out. The ATI Coral Plus has an approximate Kelvin Temperature of 15000K+. It combines the properties of the Blue Plus (50%), Aquablue Special (40%) and the Purple Plus(10%). Here is a link to the ATI Product page with some great info on all of their bulbs.
Let us know if you have any questions!
Is was wondering what you guys would recommend for a 4 bulb fixture. I'd like to get a nice crisp blue daylight look
We recommend 2 of the Blue Plus and 2 of the Auqablue Special by ATI for the best coloration. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I have a radio Gen 3 pro as well as 4 T5's that I added for supplemental lighting. What color lamps would you recommend for my T5's? I have mostly sps with a few lps and a couple zoa colonies.
The most common neutral colors are the Blue plus (slightly blue) and the aqua blue special (more white) These are very popular and the main bulbs in our T5 fixtures. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What is the diameter and length pin to pin on the 80W ?
The length of a 80 watt 60" T5 bulb is actually 57 1/2" pin to pin and the diameter is approx 5/8". The measurements of all T5 bulbs are nominal and usually represent the total length of the bulb with end caps.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
