I'd vote ATI bulbs, I love mine. They are priced right too, much less than the geissmanns and uvl's.

So which one you leaning towards then? The ati one would be awesome I bet but again, theres the cost concern.

I'll go see if I can find the websites that offer them with the 25% off on bulbs when you buy the fixture...

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

That's what I consider them. The blue pluses for sure are actinic since they are really really blue. i feel the same way about the purples. Not enough white light in them really.
