Good bulbs

I like these bulbs. They give you good coral growth. They are not "blue" in the respect you would think a bulb labeled "15K" would be, rather they are white with a very subtle hint of blue. They work best if you use them in conjunction with T12 or T5 actinics.

Great bulbs, nice color, I will purchase another set of these when they wear out. The only con is they are a little spendy.

Excellent bulb

Heard great things about this bulb & decided to try it. WOW !! Not dissapointed. These bulbs put out great par numbers for being 175w. No wonder they're nicknamed "Par Busters" !! If you don't mind a bright white light in your Reef or can supplement with actinic lights, this is for you. Great bulb Iwasaki !! Keep um' coming, and I'll keep buying.

Great bulb

I get awesome growth with these bulbs. Everyone who is in my reef club cannot believe the growth I get with these bulbs. I have 2 over a 75 gallon tank. Color is nice as well....not overly blue or overly white.

Best Bulb For 175 watt

I currently keep a 75 gal. sps tank. This bulb blows away any 175 watt on the market, and guess what? Our pals at Marine depot stock it for a reasonable price. Finally my corals are dancing. Mike

Beats other bulbs hands down

I got these bulbs to replace my 175 watt 14K Hamiltons. The Hamiltons were only about a month old but I wanted to see what everybody was raving about. These bulbs were about twice as bright and a pure white light, looked like sunlight filtering in the tank! I'd highly recommend these bulbs.

175? Are you sure?

This has got to be the best bulb on the market. I have gone through many lighting concoctions in my 5 years of reefing, but 3 of these bad boys over my 155 bow are incredible. Less algae problems and twice the par. A bit more expensive, but every bit worth it. A picture is worth a thousand words, unless well lit. Then it's worth well over a million. Eye-yes!!!

Excellent PAR & Color

I have been using this bulb for over a year and LOVE it. Light output (PAR) is amazing and the color is a very nice blue.

greatness

contrary to that last review, sure they may not be the bluest of 15k bulbs. But the PAR of this bulb is comparable to a 10k, it blows every other 14-15k out of the water.
