    Hi guys,

    I have just replaced my 20000k 54w T5's with aquapink from Giesseman.
    My configuration and lighting cycle is as follows:-

    21h30 to 09h30 2 x moonlight LED's
    09h30 to 21h30 2 x 54w Aquapink T5's
    10h30 to 20h30 2 x 54w 10000k T5's
    12h30 to 18h30 1 x 150w 10000k MH
    1 x 150w 20000k MH
    The tank displays very nicely to my eyes.
    Does anyone have any comments or suggestions.

    Hi Guys

    To my eyes it looks good as it seems to enhance the colors, especially the pinks & greens.

    I don't know what the Fiji purple looks like but would like to know more about it

    Hi Ted. The Fiji Purple is made by KZ. The color falls on the pink/purple side. I have used the bulb for some years now and have been quite pleased with it. It usually takes the bulb about 14 days to kick into full power. The bulb does not only produce color but growth as well. :)
