    URI sun my tank look like pink panter

    I just replace my 3x 5 foot VHO philip 03 actinic for 2 URI actinic + 1x URI VHO sun. I want to reduce my MH time a bit and dont want to have only actinic blue all the time.

    The 03 actinic rock but im realy not impress with the sun!
    It is very very very pink. Anthias and pink birdnest look amazing but the rest of the tank is bleurk.....

    anyone have experience with them? what are you using with actinic? Maybe I should beter go with a 1x 50/50 and 2x actinic?

    Cool

    don't worry, for some reason those VHO lamps seem to do that for the first week or so and then there okay. why?? I don't know but when I first put mine on thats what I got.
    I like the 50/50 lamps better though as the suns are still a litle pink overall compared to the 50/50 actinic whites

    I had the exact same experience with the Aquasun. I gave it a few months but couldn't stand the pink hue. My personal; preference is one actinic white with one super actinic. That gives me the VHO colour I prefer. I still have Aquasun bulbs sitting on my shelf from a few years ago.

    I agree. I'd try the actinic white (50/50) bulb for a change.

    I too prefer the 50/50 actinic white with an actinic 03.

    yeh the AQUASUNS are over all to pink. they will get better after awhile but di stay pinkish. the 50/50 actinic whites are better.
