Looks great when mixed with a normal daylight (6500-6700K) bulb. I use a 21 watts Colormax light and a 21 watts 6700K for the first and last hour my lights come on. Replaces actnic bulbs since I'm doing a freshwater tank and do not need them for supporting coral growth. The quad lighting fixture then switches to a pair or HO 39 watt bulbs for most of the day to support healthy play growth in my 21 inch deep tank. The Colormax and 6700 21 watt light then come on before switching in to moonlight mode. A single "daylight" 6700K bulb balances well with the pinker tones of the Colormax bulb which contains lots of 430-480 NS light as well as even more 6400-7500K light. I highly recommend to use one Colormax bulb per 1-2 daylight bulbs. It really brings out the colors in your fish. it will make your dull fish look good and you nice fish look great.

Decent product for the money. I used this with a 30 in coralife freshwater dual bulb fixture (which went out within 45 days btw) and it is decent for plants but doesn't put out enough light. Overall its just ok, id recommend saving your money and buying a good light fixture like wave point or current usa for freshwater needs. To be fair, central Aquatics has been really good about replacing the defective unit and their customer service seems great so far.

I purchased the colormax & the 6700k daylight & they arrived OK.

The bad thing is that this bulb burnt out in 6 months averaging just 4 hours of use a day (African Cichlids, no plants in a 90 gallon). From my experiences I usually get at least 3 to 4 times that much life.

I'm going to continue looking at the LED's since they use <50% of the electric & have much much longer bulb life. 95% of my house is lit by LEDs now & I'm saving $20 - $30 a month just on that.

Ordered this bulb and another Temperature bulb for aquarium. Have used them before and was very happy. Unfortunately both bulbs flashed once fully on activation and then only lightly glowed or did not light at all afterwards. I am very sure it was some damage due to shipping. I buy so many things on Amazon or the internet that I thought it was worth the risk. I never contacted Amazon or the vendor since I felt I was the stupid one. Some things shouldn't be shipped as individual items. As a manufactured product I know these are good products. I just would not purchase via web again.

Arrived shattered. I'm sure it would have been great had it arrived in tact. The packing seemed like it should have worked but it didn't, they tried - I'll give them that. Lesson learned on trying to buy a 4' bulb online

Used on a aqueon 25 gallon tank. This is used on a lighting ballast that came with the tank. This is good for plants, but you may need more light than this.
