This bulb was ordered to replace a bulb I bought at a local retail giant to replace the factory bulb in my 15 gallon column tank. I had been having trouble with fish getting sick and irritated by the lighting of the previous bulb and had also experienced poor plant growth in the tank. The previous bulb (the one from a retail giant, not a power-glo) only lasted 1.5 months. Based on the reviews from other Amazon customers, I ordered this bulb because it (a) lasts longer, (b) does very well in planted aquariums, and (c) promised to give a very pleasant hue. I couldn't be more happy. I LOVE the slightly purple hue of the light... it really brings out the colors of my tropical fish. I also noticed the fish seem to behave differently under this light... they seem much more at ease. I am definitely a novice when it comes to aquariums, but I know a product when it works... and this is a must-buy.

I, too, was worried about the shipping of a fragile bulb--but this item came so well packaged, I was very impressed. I highly recommend this bulb. You won't be disappointed.

It is my opinion that this is the only bulb that gives my aquarium a pleasing natural hue, not to mention my fish seem to appreciate and thrive in its light spectrum. This item was hard to find until I came here to Amazon.com. Thank You Amazon.com for having this product available !!! I should purchase another one while they are still available.

I ordered 2 of these for our fixture. One came completely shattered and physically snapped in half. I read other reviews about this occurring and crossed my fingers for the best since I needed it for a party. The second light arrived a different day and worked great. I give a 3* due to packaging and the fact that I only ended up with 1 light when I needed 2.

The best fluorescent bulbs for fresh water Aquariums ,
For my 75 gallon tank fixture I need 2 - 48 inch bulbs as replacements to the burnt out GE Aqua Rays bulbs F40T12 which lasted a very long time .
I changed the 2 ballasts from T12 to T8 and have my original aquarium matching color temperature back .
Each Power - Glow bulb is T8 40 watt 48 inch long very bright beautiful lighting (no blue or green or yellow tinge).
I love the Power-Glow Bulbs.
as good as it gets .
Thank you Amazon

I know of no better bulbs to avoid a dingy yellow or washed out white looking aquarium. They really bring out the red and blue colors in the fish, and the green in the plants. I have also had great success using these for live plants.

It looks amazing in my 15 Column tank. I was thinking of doing a light modification but wanted to try this light first. Thank god I did. My fish look awesome and so do my plants. It has a nice touch of blue for the right glow!

Bulbs had great prices and were packed VERY well. The description indicates T10, but the bulb is actually a T8 bulb. Allpet provided me with fantastic customer service. They called me back the same day after they physically checked the product to verify it was a T8. The type of bulb is important to know to see if its compatible with your hood. 2 of these bulbs were used in my 55g fresh water cichlid tank.

The color spectrum of this bulb is exactly what I was looking for to brighten the aquarium.

This light is awesome! My plants love it, so much so, that I'm having to trim them back because they are overwhelming my tank. It promotes natural greens and reds in your plants. A must have, if you want your tank to explode with plants!
