    So, we just had a storm roll through and lost power for a second or two. My four bulb dimmable ATI Sunpower fixture didn’t come back on and the the menu just had a row of shaded boxes when power returned. Usually it just pops back on. So I unplugged it and replaced the bulbs (LONG overdue) and...

    I've decided to switch fully over to T5s on the 55. Just bought the ATI dimmable Sunpower fixture. My question is on bulb replacement time. Does a quality fixture extend bulb life? I've read of some people using this fixture using bulbs for 18 months. ATI claims "Superior design and high-end...

    I am still fairly new to T5. Went out and got 4 new bulbs for my 6 T5HO bulb 36" fixture. I placed the lights like this front to back: blue+ coral+ blue+ moonlight leds (almost never on) blue+ purple+ blue+ What do you think of the purple plus? I thought it would bring the reds/oranges out...

    I have a 4/54w t5 setup going on here and it's a too bright&white for my taste I am running : aquablue special : x2 purple +'s : Blue + And it looks too white and bright with all 4 on. But with only the purple plus and blue plus on it doesn't look that bad. I'm wanting more of...

    Sorry guys and gals I know there are a ton of threads on this, but I can use your help/clarification as many of you know a lot more than I do. My corals are fading, not sure if they are bleaching per say (maybe). I posted on a thread titled similarly, but no info as of yet, so I figured I...

    I recently read how awesome these lights are and was skeptical to purchase them. I am so glad I did. My tank looks completely different and I only installed 2 bulbs of the 6. AMAZING!!! Never using zoo med or whatever other brand I was using. Worth the money.

    Just curious which two ATI bulbs would look good over a 10 gallon zoanthid garden. I want the colors to POP, but they need to be intense enough so that the zoanthids will grow as well. If you have any comments, suggestions, or better yet pictures, please let me know. Thanks. :)

    My 29 gallon reef tank is almost 5 months old now. Right now I have several softies and some hammers, but I plan on getting more LPS and perhaps even a SPS or 2. Soon enough it'll be time to change out the Aquaticlife T5-HO bulbs that came with the 4-bulb fixture. I want to replace them with...
