My Fiji Purple bulb is due to be replaced so I'm doing some research and looking for recommendations. I came across the UVL Red Sun bulb, is this a good subtitute? Anyone using this bulb that can share an opinion on it? I'm running a Giesemann Spectra w/2 x 20K Radiums and 4 T5s. Current T5s are Giesemann (2 x Aquablue Plus, 1 Pure Atinic) and a KZ Figi Purple. Thanks, Dan

Where did you get this from? I disagree

it has about 10% more PAR, not way more and the OP is using T5's to supplement his MH's...

sorry was thinking super actinic ( which is 210) either way the fiji is a nicer bulb ( colour wise IMO) than the actinic white. All uvl bulbs have a red hue to them which i hate. I used to use only Uvl and giessman and couldn't get the same colour as with ATI and KZ bulbs.
