150W 10000K METAL HALIDE DOUBLE ENDED BULB - Ushio
The German-Made Ushio double-ended metal halide bulb offers excellent coloration and intensity. The crisp-white color will illuminate your tank nicely. It is very similar to an IceCap 10,000K bulb but slightly more blue. Actinic supplementation may be used to create a bluer look. An electronic ballast, magnetic pulse-start ballast or magnetic HQI ballast is required to ignite these bulbs. It must also be housed inside a pendant. It cannot be used with simply a reflector in an open application as UV rays emitted by the bulb must first be filtered with a UV-proof lens. An excellent choice for nano-reefs and other reef tanks up to 22" deep. on how the different Kelvin ratings appear and more information on metal halide bulbs.
