    Its time to replace my MH bulbs. I have 2 175 watt bulbs 14000k. I think their xm bulbs but not really sure. Before these I had 2 175 watt 10000 but I didn't like the yellow look.

    Me and a friend are turning two 29 gallon tanks into a sump and a reef tank, and the tanks length is sort of weird as finding any VHO lighting or good PC lighting is a pain, the tank is 30x12x18,.. I never liked the height, it's always seemed to tall for PC lighting.. and I cant find anything...

    :angry:Well, here it goes. I started on my Diy lights and got everything wired up. Installed some old light just to make sure everything is ok, and they went right up fin. So I installed my new ushio bulbs but they won't turn on. I figured that the first start takes a little more time, but i...

    So I've been running my 10k Ushios (250w HQI DE on Reef Optix III reflectors) for about 10 months now, and I am about to purchase a second unit for the other 1/2 of my tank (only had MH over the side of the tank w/ SPS, but I am now going 100% sps). I also run 2x 110w 48" URI VHO actinics...

    What is the deal with Ushio Bulbs? Are they only for certain systems, or can I you use them on any system? For instance I know about the difference of HQI and all that - but if I have been running a double ended HQI 250 watt Hamilton bulb, can I switch to a double ended 250 Watt HQI Ushio bulb?
  13. Clams
    My tank is 18" deep and I have 136W of individually reflected T5 light in my 50 gal. I've read that crocea's and maximas really need a fair amount of MH to survive, and with T5's seemingly breaking a lot of MH trends more and more, I was wondering if it applied to clams as well. I know my...

  17. General Reef Discussion
    Ok, so PAR values and the general scientific quackery aside... what bulbs do you recommend for an SPS dominated tank. You can select more than 1 if you have seen the same with a few different brands. I plan on running about 15k with 2x 250w on the outside and 1x 175w in the middle Ushio Radium...

    Anyone using these around here. how do you like them? I was just checking sanjay's site and the ppfd of 179 is looking good on a pulse start ballast. Are they ugly yellow? Hamiltons nice too but the price of the XM's is looking sweet to me at this point.
