I like the ATI T5 aquablue specials for the white light and the ATI blue plus for the bluelight. Those bulbs are awesome and only a few $$ more than the cheapo ones that look crappy. At least that's my opinion. lol

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

Petco and petsmart don't sell the ATI bulbs. You'll probably need to order them from a reef retailer online if your LFS doesn't sell them.

Oh and yes, ATI bulbs are awesome for corals. They're the best T5 lights out there IMO/IME.
