Hi all, I am looking at replacing my used Halides soon. They 250watt SE Bulbs. Since I dont know the age of them I figured that I would replace them sooner rather then later. What ones would be the best choice. I have hurd Radium are good and so are Ushio. Is there a certain Kevlin unit I should be shooting for?

I'm not running halides on this tank anymore since its mainly a fowlr but I would run all three the same. Otherwise the lighting will look funny. I had the ushios and they were very yellow. Didn't care for them myself. The other bulb that would be cool single end is the phoenix 14k bulbs.

The color on the radiums is ideal, but you will sacrifice growth(when compared to a 10 or 14k).

 

How big is your tank again? I like the way tim at Westside(and many others...) does it on his big tanks:20k radiums in the front, 10k in back for growth.
