    IWASAKI new light out!!!!!!!

    IWASAKI has released there new light for METAL HALIDE
    in the 250w&400w  65k.  This is awsome news as these lights were made for standard ballasts[m58+m59]ansi
    and will not have that green look that we were getting from using the IWASAKI  MERCURY VAPOR bulb.I have a good feeling that this light will put the europings on the run. If it has the par and price of there old MV bulb then we are laughing!!!!!! can't wait for IVAN to start stocking these.P.S  IVAN if you don't know the supplier for IWASAKI  here in ONT or QUE. let me know as I've got the contact and I also have been in contact with
    MIKE ANDERSON at EYELIGHTING.

    What exactly is different from the Iwasaki 400 watt 65K bulb I've been running for the past 6 months....I love the 65K bulb I have now from Iwasaki.
    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    hey mouse, the difference is the new bulbs are made for a METAL HALIDE ballast while the older ones are ment for a MERCURY VAPOR BALLAST. many use them on a MH ballast regardless and they work great but you get that green tint and thats why you have to add lots of actinics. With the new bulbs [CLEAN ARC] you should get less of the green tint. we'll have to wait and see until someones gets them on there tanks.

    groovy.

    bring one in Ivan, if the price is decent, I need a new 400w bulb.

    let me know..

    was interesting to read rga's comment about the "newer" iwasakis of the last couple of years. I gave up on iwasaki's for 400w ers a few years back as I thought they were way too green & yellow.

    I've used ABs, and right now I'm running venture 5500k's with 3x5' vho actinics.

    They are actually going to be made by EYELIGHTING.COM which deal the IWASAKI LIGHTS. wether it is a copy and just as good we won't find out until the end of the year.It will be 65k and made for MH ballasts so we will just have to wait and see. I wish they wouldn't have posted it on there site as I was all exited!

    Re: IWASAKI new light out!!!!!!!

    I'm not sure RTJ...

    I talked to eyelighting yesterday and they told me they would contact Iwasaki and get back to me on pricing. &nbsp;

    They contacted me today and said Iwasaki was not sure how much these would retail for and that I would have to wait a little longer.

    I'll post more info as soon as I get it.

    weird?????? I was talking to EYE also? seems like one hand doesn't know the other. The lady I talked to said that they were making the lamp and not IWASAKI. I have another contact there and I'll see what the heck is up. Thanks IVAN.
