    Their shipping is impecable. I ordered four bulbs from them and they were packaged so well it took me forever to get them out. UPS could've played soccer with the box and I don't think the bulbs would've broken.

    Well, I bit the bullet and went with the ATI Purple Plus along with the Blue Plus. I guess i'll have first hand experience with this bulb.Has anyone else used/purchased this bulb?

    Shipping is good. Customer service from the sales department is not all that great.

    I will have a Purple Plus tomorrow. I will post a pic of the bulb along with a Fiji Purple, UVL Actinic White and UVL AquaSun.

    Reef Geek's packaging is similar to AquaCave by the description anpgp gave on opening his package. My experience was similar to his from a Reef Geek order.

    2in10 looking forward to your post. I've been doing alot of reading and wonder if my FIji isn't causing a little bleaching from the red spectrum.... I like that from what it looks like the ATI has a little less red.

    Looking at these charts the ATI's "red" spectrum is shifted down a bit towards orange.

    2in10: how about a FTS to see the overall color?

    I like it, the color is a bit bluer purple compared to the Fiji one that's a bit redder in hue.
