To be honest, I hate the purples. makes my coralline look more fake than it already does. lol i'm hoping to swap them out for 2 more blue plus's someday soon.

i bought 2 purple plus too. i honestly don't see any difference. i think they get overpowered by the other lamps. i would like to replace them with a UVL aquasun or maybe a 6500k.

I was thinking something similar believe it or not. I think my corals would appreciate the white spectrum those bulbs have. I just don't want to lose the blue that I have. Do you think it will wash out the blue from the 4 blue plus's I have?

Thanks!

So what's going on with the ATO and Kalk? Are you doing the max (2tsp/gal?) and burning through it? I haven't been testing regularly yet to see what I'm using a week, but I'm only putting in 1 tsp for 5 gal and when I check calcium is around 400.
