Lol if the lights your using now are doin good no need to fix whats not broken not sure of what coral your keeping but changing lights on an established tank may shock it my opinions arent backed by research i base my opinions on experiences that ive had over last 6 years ive tried many things some went good some went bad lol

For purple bulbs, some people prefer Fiji purple over the ato purple bulb.

I actually run MH and LEDs over one of my tanks. I'm still not sold on LEDs being the best thing for sps on their own.

My buddy built some leds with inclusion of uv bulbs i do believe they are good for sps i think uv is what most led fixures lack that mh provides its my belief that sps coral will grow without uv but you wont get the sps coral to show their true colors

Okay my bulbs are in and in the fixture, I guess I was thinking they would make a big difference but they don't as far as the look of the tank is concerned. I hope they help the color and growth of my corals we shale see.

Which bulbs did you go with - combination? My ATI replacements were night and day.
