OSRAM 24w Blue Power Compact

Pictured left is one of the four OSRAM 24w Blue Power Compact bulbs that came with the AB AquaSpace Lighting system. I'm not overly impressed with these bulbs but they look OK when the halides are off. I'm not positive I would actually call these actinic bulbs. They seem to be of what the names says a blue bulb.

The bulbs do bring out some florescent pigments in the corals but they do not make the corals GLOW like they used to under my VHO actinincs. But to be fair, I had two 160w VHO actinic bulbs back then. Not exactly a fair comparison.
