Ive always been a t5 guy but recently traded some coral for a power compact fixture to use as supplemental lighting to my t5 fixture. I wanna put new bulbs in it but never owning one im not sure whats the nest. I was thinking about current brand or coralife?? What do you guys use?

uvl with the built in reflectors. They made the best pc bulbs imho. What fixture did you get?

I use coralife, it's probably not the BEST, but it's good quality for what you pay. So if its just supplemental lighting your looking for I would recommend it, especially if you are on a budget.

The fixture is a used coralife dual lamp aqualight 48in. It came with coralife actinic and 6700k bulbs and i hate the color and they arent very bright. I think they have about 6 months use on them. I want two 12-14k bulbs and i think im gonna go with uvl the built in reflectors sounds like a great idea i cant wait to see how they work
