When I ordered these lamps I was very hesitant and fearful at how I would receive these, in what condition (how many broken) and how to return them if needed. I was pleasantly shocked! They arrived in a long box (about 5' x 10" x 10") and each of the lamps (in their original packages) were placed in a hard, long mailing tube just longer than each packaged lamp (48"), then wrapped in bubble wrap then placed in the shipping box surrounded by popcorn packing. First class job! Every precaution was taken and beautifully packed into the final box. Not a single lamp damaged! On time delivery! Well done! Perfect!

These are the lights that come with the Coralife T5 light fixture. I have had this light for almost a year now and I have to say that I am very pleased with these bulbs. They provide a nice crisp white light and my corals and fish seem to enjoy it. They aren't so bright that any of the corals burn and I can keep just about anything in my tank, except for the clams that require the intense lighting, but then again I have never tried. So far I haven't had to replace any but probably will in about 3 or 4 months as a routine maintenance. Great lights

Defective at first, exchanged and now working well
I purchased these bulbs and got a defective bulb that caused my light to trip my gfi plug. I returned it for an exchange and got it about 2 weeks later with no issues. The bulb itself works well and along with my actinics (quad fixture) is allowing my corals to grow nicely. The only regret is that I purchased the 30" fixture which is a non standard length so I can't buy bulbs from other manufacturers.
