Bright, long lasting bulb featured

Comments I've used several different brands of bulbs over the years and have learned that they aren't all the same. I've settled on bulbs by UV Lighting (UV or UVL) because they have that great mix of quality and affordability. There are "nicer" bulbs out there on the market, but they also cost much more and in my experience don't give me as much bang for my buck as the cost would indicate.

I started using them when they were recommended to me by someone I consider to be a lighting expert. They used them on their own tank, which I knew to be beautiful, healthy, and full of SPS corals. I let him pick out the color combination for me (which included some 12K UV's) and replaced all six of my bulbs at once in my largest fixture. I was very pleased with the results.

Not only did my corals look nicer in terms of colors expressing themselves brightly, but my corals quickly took on a more healthy appearance.

The bulbs lasted almost a year before I replaced them. UV states they have a life of 4000 hours. I run my lights 12 hours a day, so the math works out just about right. The nice thing was, I noticed less end of life problems (i.e. algal growth, coral darkening etc.) than I did with other bulbs, especially the Coralife I had in it before.


Liked about it 1. Affordable.
2. Long lasting.
3. Not overpowering.
4. Solid packaging with Styrofoam inserts that cradle the bulbs.


Didn't like 1. Honestly too many choices in terms of bulb type from UV lighting. They use names for them that are similar and a bit confusing.

Solid 10k bulb

Comments Good quality 10k bulb can help pull out certain colors such as reds, and purples. Definitely needs the company of a blue bulb otherwise it will washout greens. It is a bit more purple than my previous bulb (10k current).


Liked about it - Competitive price
- Makes reds stand out


Didn't like - UVL packaging is flimsy so be careful transporting
