    10K Bulb on eye ballast

    I coudn't help myself but to try out SunAquatics new bulbs on my eye ballast(was running 65k Iwasaki's). I didn't think they would fire... or if they did was expecting a very dim light. Much to my surprize they fired up and took about a minute to get a nice bright light. Much whiter than the Iwasaki's(expected with a 10k bulb). Does anyone know why these bulbs work on an EYE ballast?

    So far the only ballast that the bulbs did not fire were on the CoralVue E-Ballast.

    Thanks

    Venki... for the record.. the bulbs is starting to give off a nice white color... the green/yellow tint is slowly going away. I'll keep everyone updated on the coral growth and colour
