    400 PFO 13k's just arrived

    I just fired up our new PFO 13k lamps and all I have to say is YABADABADOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! hehe sorry if I sound a bit weird but these lamps just rule!!!! I'll try and get some comparison pics against the Sun10k lamps tomorrow. The comparison is not really fair(10k vs 13k) but then again we were comparing 10ks against 65kss not to long ago(hehe sorry venki).

    This should give you an idea of how nice the 13ks PFO lamps are... 3 thumbs up from IJO :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    ABahn: PFO 400 watt 13k lamps are 119.99... 250's and 175's are 109.99.

    Johnny: yes.. your 250 watters definately had an impact on the type of lamps I would go with... I'm extremely pleased with this light.

    could you send me a pm on the total cost of your new setup. I will need one for the tank and just want to see what I'm looking at. I'm also interested in the DE version as well.

    According to JB NY's bulb study over on RC:
    http://reefcentral.com/forums/showth...70#post1866070

    The 250w PFO13K bulb is about half as intense, PAR-wise, as the 10K Ushio, and a third as intense as the 6500K Iwasaki. They may look nice, but they rank near the bottom of the bulb pile for intensity, it seems.

    Cool par

    I to read that thread but I have to tell ya, I've had both IWASAKIS,SUNAQUATICS and now PFOS and par be damned because my corals grow,are very colorfull, I find it just a tad less bright than the other bulbs but this is the trade off when going up in K for color.These were all try'd on my 90g.Just my oppion and anyone who has seen my tank likes what they see.
