    Buying 250w bulb.. for SPS..

    So here i am, selling everythign i got to setup a new SPS tank.
    I was wondering what kind of lighting would be best for SPS?
    I know some of you would say it depend on my liking..
    I just want to know which bulb will colour-up the sps and gives good growth.

    For the those who has 250w with sps, which bulb would you recommend!?

    I have a 90gal 25'' high and 48 long. I currently have a 400 Venture 13k in the middle, 2x110 blue arctinic and setting up 2x250w on each side.

    Hey Khoa,
    I'm using 2x250W 14K Arcs in conjunction with 2x110W URI VHO, 1 actininc and 1 50/50 on an IceCap 660. The tank has nice colour, but it's only 18" high.
