    Great link Venki... has anyone taken any pics of the Sun against another 10k lamp? This would be a true test as we would be comparing 10k lamps.

    Great pics...as soon as I get a new digital, I'll get some pics up of venkiw's bulbs. I still swear by them...my coralline is exploding and even becoming a nuissance on the glass now. Corals all growing faster than ever, and the only thing I ever changed in the past 6 months is Venkiw bulb...went from an iwasaki 6500K with 3 VHO atinics, to the new 10000K and 2 vho atinics. Took on atinic out. Keep the great products coming venkiw.

    I got the same bulb two days ago from Ivan (175W) and i find the colour a bit greenish. Venkim said that after 100 hours burned in period, it should turn white.

    Mine definately got whiter after a week or two. The next bulb I get I'm going to take a pic (if I get anew digital) of Day1 and then one a month later....huge difference I think. Add some atinic flourescents. I find you have to do this no matter what MH bulb you have. even 2 normal output atincs makes a huge difference.
