Yeah from what I hear on here there great depends on what kind of listing your looking for that's all. Actinic whites? Coral grow lights?

Ati is one of the best imo. What are you planning on putting in your tank? For corals ati's blue + and aquablue cant be beat. They have a new coral bulb that just came out, havent seen much written on them yet but i assume quality. Only one i dont get from ati is my purple, i get a fiji purple instead. You should find quote afew in the forums thatll agree with me on this combo.

Blue plus and an aquablue special. that's my thought. OR a blue plus and a coral plus as the white bulb. Will have a bit more of a blue hue with the coral plus.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'll tell you right now, worry less about the bulbs you have in a 2 bulb T5. You need to get a larger unit. I have a 4 bulb on my 36 tall bowfront and it isn't enough light. I'm hoping to use my tax refund on a bigger tank... so I'm holding off upgrading my lights as I will do that at the same time. Looking at a 6 bulb unit, but I want to keep SPS in my tank.

Aquatic Life

This is what I am looking at. It will solvethe problem of many plugs, timers, and lighting all at the same time.
