- T5 Purple 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.
ATI Purple Plus T5 High-Output Fluorescent bulbs combine the properties of a full spectrum bulb with strong red and blue components which brings out the pinks, purples and reds in an aquarium. Recommended Use: in combination with at least 2 or more other T5 bulbs like the Blue Plus and Aquablue Special. Not recommended as a stand-alone bulb.

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.

Not a good bulb for saltwater By A grandis on 11/30/2015A grandis would recommend this product to a friendLike the KZ Fiji Purple it shouldn't be sold as a marine aquarium bulb.
You can have enough "pop" from actinic blue or ATI blue Plus, with a great PAR.
I wouldn't waste money in such bulb and I actually would use that precious space in the fixture with a more useful bulb!!
Also, there are other ways to guarantee good natural color for your marine inverts, not reflection from a bulb.
The bulb has it's quality and can be a supplemental bulb for a planted tank with some species of red plants and to pop the colors of some of the fish. That's all.
To tell the truth I still would prefer to use other types of bulbs as a supplement for the fresh water tanks, like Aqua flora, super flora. I use mainly 6000K for plants.
Great product. By Pavel on 9/15/2015Pavel would recommend this product to a friendThese bulbs are great. I'm happy I got them, my corals look alot happier now.

Perfect By Joshua on 7/15/2015Joshua would recommend this product to a friendthese are better than coralife bulbs any day
I have a 6 bulb set up. I was thinking 2 blue special, 2 blue plus, 1 coral grow, and 1 either actinic or purple plus. What would be your recommendation between those two bulbs and that set up as a whole?
We like using the Aqua blue and blue plus as the main bulbs and coral plus as a great growth. the final bulb comes down to if you want deeper blue or possibly a purple which helps with deeper reds of corals. Most will not impact the growth and comes down to aesthetics.
