    So, I was looking to upgrade my lights and was thinking about getting Sunpod HQI. Should I get 150watt or 250w? Tank is 25" tall and 30" long. (55 gallons) And how good is this light? Would 250w heat the water too much?

    i decided to swap bulbs today (both bulbs have been burned in) i was running a reeflux 12000K and for some reason, i think it is too white. some people report it as being a bit too blue, but that may be due to the balast, because i can't detect a hint of blue in it. i have a 150W HQI Current...
