    Which bulb would you choose for 175w MH ?

    I'm using 175w tar ballast. Which bulb would you use for the best colour and intensity ? I've no actinic supplement.


    thanks.

    Im using an ARC 175W 14K from AC, works great so far, nice coloring, not too much blue, more white light, I supplement with Actinics though. A 20K although will give you lots of blue w/o actinics.

    I read over at RC that XM 10k bulb has nice colour and good intensity (par) compare to other bulbs. Do you know where i can get it in Canada ?

    Did you ask Ivan? There's a good chance he can order it & he's generally got the best prices in town.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
