Great Value, well made

Comments Great value, these bulbs cost less than others, but still perform very well. I have seen complaints about the color, but XM offers higher color temps for that if that's what you want. I will keep using these until I find a very good reason to change.


Liked about it Well made bulb, always starts, great color and growth in my tank with 2 of these. Also I am happy with the heat output, I have not needed a chiller running these on a system with over 200 gallons of water.


Didn't like All MH bulbs use lots of power. I wish they used less, but that's just what you expect when using this type of lighting. LED is coming up in the aquaruim world, but will cost way more to produce this much light, so until the price of LED comes down I will keep using these.

High Par, but you better have actinics

General This bulb ended up being too bright for my tank, the color was very white/yellow, and even with the supplemental lights the color was still too washed out.


Liked about it Very Bright Buld, High Par, long lasting


Didn't like Too Yellow

OK, but still to yellow

General I initially like this bulb, but after running it through the burn in period, it was still too yellow for my tastes. Good Growth though! And it did not seem to encourage algae growth as much.


Liked about it Good bulb, better color than Reeflux 10k


Didn't like Still too yellow
