We know that having the right equipment is key to a happy and healthy aquarium. This week we are featuring new products from ATI.
Since their introduction in 2000, ATI T5 bulbs have been at the forefront of T5 bulb technology. Today’s ATI T5 bulbs are no exception. ATI uses the latest advances in phosphors (to emit light) and manufacturing techniques to produce bulbs with higher output, better coloration, and more stability.
We have found most reefers prefer a bluer look to their tank as it helps to bring our more colors in their corals. Please remember that bulb choice is ultimately a matter of personal preference and what works for one, may not work for another.
Coral Plus T5 Bulb
This bulb’s color spectrum falls between the Aquablue Special and the Blue Plus. This bulb has a higher blue part to enhance the fluorescent pigments in your corals while still having some peaks of red and green.
Aquablue Special T5 Bulb
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.
Blue Plus T5 Bulb
ATI Blue Plus is recommended as a proven COMPLEMENTARY lamp which creates an intensive blue light ( max. by 450 nm). Therefore, it has become one of the most reliable T5 tubes and is the main pillar of the ATI tube concept. The ATI Blue Plus also helps balance out a washed out or yellow hued tank.
Purple Plus T5 Bulb
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.
Actinic 03 T5 Bulb
In contrast to the ATI Blue Plus, which creates an intensive blue light ( max. by 450 nm) , the ATI Actinic produces a violet-blue light which is less brighter, but which emphasizes the flourescent pigments in the corals. Recommended Use: as a supplement to metal halides or in combination with other T5 bulbs.
We work hard to provide you with innovative, attractive, and affordable solutions that help you keep your aquarium happy, healthy, and beautiful. Hope you enjoy your new addition to your aquarium lighting.
