    Replacement Bulbs: Most for my $$$

    Although its not the best peice of equipment Im currently using the Coralife Hang on Tank Mount 150 watt HQI. (20k halide). ((http://www.esuweb.com/cardfile.asp?I...lationship=332)
    , which Santa brought me last year. This fixture sits over my 15H nano, which is a mixed reef containing everything from GSP to a couple monti's as well as a BTA.

    Using my existing stock ballast I was wondering what kinda of bulb chocies you could recommend. Im looking for 14k or 20k light preferably, and something that is rated at 150w.

    thanks!

    There are not many 150 watt owners out there... most venture into the 250 range of DE lamps. We currently only stock ARC lamps in the 150 watt(39.99) and have a choice of 10 or 20k.

    I don't have experience with halides but I have some arc T5HO and I'm very satisfied with them. I wouldn't hesitate to try them.
