    I put one in towards the rear of my light unit as that's where most of my Sps are.....I like the look, not as brilliant white yet not too blue. My corals are growing really well under my choice of tubes. Replaced a purple+ for the coral+

    I know what you mean regards taking pics, my cameras don't pick up the true colours of the light either

    I have no complaints mate, considering I only have 2abs, 3bp, 2cp and 1 pp I get decent growth. They are more white than blue though tbh. I reckon you would get better growth from 2cp than 1 abs and 1bp. I may change my pp for an actinic soon as my actinic isn't running at the moment as it was getting old. I think I'd get bslightly better par from the actinic than the pp as well. Pp seem to pop pinks and reds only where as actinic pop all corals.

    Basically if you prefer blue water then swap a abs for a cp and if you prefer whiter water swap a bp for a cp.......and so on.

    It is hard for me to compare as I haven't gone without them on this system but considering how long my tank has been running I am happy....

    I was thinking about trying a couple of the Coral+ bulbs, I still messing with the bulbs. My unit came with 5 aqua blue specials (just for Nev) 2 blue+, a purple and actinic, I taken out 2ABS, and the puple and replaced with 3 Narva. Looking better already.

    So a coral plus is mid way between an aqua blue special and a blue+ in your opinion?

    Interesting as ive never heard of these before and didnt know what tube combo to use on my upgrade. Was originally thinking 2ABS, 2 B+, 1 acinitic and 1 PP.... May have to change my plans now dpending on your feedback...
