Good bulbs

REVIEW
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.

REVIEW
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...Read More

REVIEW
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

REVIEW
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

REVIEW
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.
