FYI-ATI has a new lamp out. Called: Coral Plus.
The latest in T5 bulb technology from ATI lighting, this is a great stand-alone bulb to stimulate coral growth. Its color spectrum falls between that of the Aquablue Special and the Blue Plus. This white lamp has a higher blue emphasis to enhance the fluorescent pigments in your corals while still having some peaks of red and green.
Yuppers I'm ordering one along with a couple of blue+
I just changed out a aquablue special so I'm going to order 1 coral+ and 2 blue+ So I'll be running 1 special-1 coral+ and 2 blue+ I'll def keep you posted
this is a very interesting thread! im interested to see what this bulb gives off. I have an 8 bulb t5 fixture over my 90g and i have 5 blue+, 1 aqua blue special, 1 10k, and a Fiji purple.. for me i guess i have the luxury of being able to swap out differernt bulbs to get the color i want. maybe ill swap out my 10k for one of these.
