Giesemann T5s at BattleCorals

attleCorals specializes in cultivating sought after SPS corals. It deals primarily with acros and montis.  It’s mission statement is to provide a source for prized SPS at affordable prices.   

It’s owner and founder Adam Derickson started as a hobbyists many years ago but as his passion for the hobby and the inhabitants grew, he found himself sharing the excess corals he had with fellow friends and hobbyists.  After a number of years of trading and sharing corals with others, Adam decided to embrace the opportunity and BattleCorals was born.  


The corals have responded extremely well


At the beginning, BattleCorals was just a single frag tank with lighting.  Today, BattleCorals is a fully functional home business with multiple propagation systems, quarantine tanks and packaging and shipping stations.  


…the proof is in the pudding… when it comes time to change out the other fixtures… [I] will be putting Giesemann’s on those too.


In the summer of 2014, CoralVue contacted Adam to ask him to beta test Giesemann T5 bulbs.  Adam was eager to help and installed the bulbs in one of his main systems.  Six months later, he welcomed [CVtv] into this facility so he could tell us first-hand his experience with the new bulbs.  Adam states that the Giesemann T5 bulbs not only color up his corals, but they also increased growth compared over the same period of time compared to other bulbs in the market.  Adam is now looking forward to upgrading his entire T5 system to feature the Giesemann T5 bulbs.  


[corals] look good.  Everything they need [light] is being met!
