Hi , anyone using T5 ATI Aquablue Special for freshwater ?

I know it might sound a bit stupid but i like the more white / blueish colors then the yellowish ones

I want to combine 1 tube of ATI Aquablue Special with 1 giesemannn daylight

If you are picking the Kelvin rating go for what you like.
It's an appeal type of thing, kelvin doesn't specify the spectrum of output from the lamp.
Also I wouldn't get hung up on CRI either.

Thanks for the answer , i ordered one Ati Aquablue Special tube and one Sylvania Aquastar 10000 K tube .

Will see the difference

What do you mean by CRI ? @Phishless

Thanks

So here there are the tubes :

First picture from top to bottom JBL 9000k and ATI aquablue special
Second picture from top to bottom JBL 9000k and Giesemann Middday 6500k
Third picture from top to bottom JBL 9000k and Sylvania Aquastar 10000k (I thought this is white colour , but its pink 10000k)

JBL 9000k combined with ATI Aquablue special tend to look like ADA Solar RGB , its bluesh light

Don't have pictures how the tank looks like with this tubes but you can see the difference between ADA Solar RGB and other yellowish lamps in the link below


I hope you got the ideea

Made another combination today :Giesemann middday and ATI aquablue special

This seems to be a bit more pleasant to the eyes , its not so blueish , in the the picture Giesemann looks a bit yellow , but its not , its just because of the contrast created by the ATI blue tube
