I just received my zoo meed reed sun 50/50 bulbs and wow! This is definitely a good buy and was certainly the lowest price i can find so petco did good this time! Also these are good bulbs to make your cichlids pop out with their beautiful colors! Check out my comparison photo (left stock bulb) (Right reef sun 50/50) Im pretty sure this review will be helpful for others so your welcome.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Waste Of $$$$

I purchased this bulb yesterday from a local Petco that is in the process of closing. Today, when I opened the package, I found the correct bulb but it was black on one edge and it rattles when I shake it gently. It won't even light up. It is a used, burnt out bulb! So how did it get in the package? Ask Petco. I won't buy another bulb from any Petco ever again. This was a complete waste of money!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The 50/50 is a good bulb. Being honest, I didn't notice a big difference in my regular color bulb but the price of these bulbs at Petco were half of what they wanted in my local store.
I would recommend this to a friend!

The price was right and my cichlids like this light. It does flicker when first turned on, but after that it is a nice and clear light.
