Its about time to replace the bulbs in my 4 bulb finnex hood and had a couple questions for the new bulbs.

From what i read through customer reviews and online that the finnex bulbs are not very good quality overall.

You do sell UV and sun t-5 bulbs besides finnex

Now my questions are will these bulbs work in the finnex ' 47 fixtures and if they do which bulbs outta the sun and UV seems to be the better bulb atm.

If there not to much difference in quality i might go with the UV since they run a little cheaper.

Plus what would you suggest to pair up the bulbs for a reef tank.

Thanks

The UV bulbs are very nice. Same spectrum as their VHO's. I'd suggest 2 actinic white, 1 sun, and 1 super actinic for the best color and growth. If you like the sunlight bulbs maybe 2 of their aquablue, 1 aquasun, and 1 true actinic.

Yes, either bulb will work in the finnex hoods.
