Yeah, I really wanted to post this because all the post I read Said to use 2x Blue+, 1x Aqua-blue Special, 1x Purple+, or to replace the purple+ with another aqua-blue special. I couldn't find any post except for 1 on the web that has a coral+ bulb in it. So I'm hoping this gives people a reference in knowing what to expect from different bulb arrangements. I will keep this up to date as far as growth is concerned, I find it hard to believe that there will be improved growth in the tank but ATI are suppose to be the best and have better light for corals so im excited to see if the growth is more rapid then the stock bulbs I had before.

ATI lamps are among the highest PAR output you can get. I guarantee that if you had a PAR meter on that tank there was just a noticeable increase.

yeah I feel that the PAR for the ATI bulbs will be much higher then some stock coralife bulbs. The power head however looks better because i cleaned it between pictures
