    It about that time we are looking to replace our AquaticLife 48" 54w T5 Ho bulbs. Currently we have 2x of each set up Natural White , Blue , Roseate. These were the original bulbs that came with the unit and have lasted over a year and a half closer to two if my mind serves me right.

    My question is should i go with the same AquaticLife brand or is there something better out there nowadays that will work with my system?

    Thanks in advance as always.....

    ATI is one of the top brands of T5HO bulbs with a wide range of colors and spectrums. They typically last longer and produce more PAR than OEM bulbs, as well. (And yes, 48" 54w is a standard size for them. :) )
