no. that's not true. they are not the same as having high end T5s. i have never seen a yellow digitata. what color are the caps? are they keeping color? how long have you had the corals under these lights?

I put the corals in about 2 weeks ago. All are were sunk in & looking stressed for 1st day. Started acclimating to the light on a 4 hours on....now they are at 6 on. All look great now, tentacles & polyps are out at right times. Their excepting food. Color is looking great. I've been looking everyday for fading or bleaching. I will take a pic of the yellow digitata when I get home. I got all my corals from a member of a local reef club. He had LOTS of tanks & was growing frags of lots of "name brand coral." Before I met him I didn't realize their was such a market for "name brand" He hooked me up though

The stalks of the yellow digitata is a brownish when all closed up, but when all the small fuzzy tentacles or caps r out under actinic blue light they look florescent yellow like a highlighter. With out the blue lights it looks more greenish
