    Getting new pacific suns, they will have place for four 54watt T5. What make and which globes.
    The Pacifics have 9 colour channels including 400-420nm ultra violet.
    Suggestions?

    You cant go wrong with either. Ask the shop to show you all the colours and pick the ones you like.

    2 x ati Aquablue Spezial and 2 x ati coral plus. You will get enough blues, purples & violet from your pacific sun unit, with more than enough control over each colour LED. The mix I suggested are all four stand alone tubes, which will really bang out PAR (although not nessascary) and take the blue edge off.

    If too much white to your liking, replace 1 x aquablue spezial and 1 x coral plus with an ati blue plus and an ati actinic.
    Awesome light you'll be getting.....

    If you gonna do this, then make sure to have your light unit with you at the shop, plugged in and running. No use buying the tubes only to have the visible colour totally different when you get home.....

    Mmmmm, good suggestion, problem is they are coming directly from Poland. Looks like I might have to experiment a bit with the ATI's, see what looks best.

    Are the globes pre fitted from Poland? Or just the led unit?
