    I've always loved the "shimmering" effect of halides (and LEDs) but until recently all I had running was T5s. 3 weeks ago I added two 250 watt halides ... and OH MY GOD what a difference!

    Hi guys, So the tank is settling in well, and I was trying to be patient, but the bulbs I got really aren't what I was hoping for. The tank came with 20K radiums, which are too blue for my tastes and the tank isn't very bright. There are 3 400W ballasts, but I generally only run two of them...
