Short life with AH supply bulbs??
I ordered a 55w 6700 power compact bulb for a coralife 24" 65w single strip with no fans. That was in May. The bulb fryed a couple of days ago. The AH supply bulbs are thinner in diameter than coralife (maybe the 10w difference?)
Luckily I picked up a light this week from a member and had a extra coralife bulb to use for now. I do not know if its the fact that there are no fans or not, The fixture gets pretty warm . The JBJ with fans is cool to the touch. I am thinking about ditching the clear panel under the light since I have legs and a glass top to let the air in and heat out. Any one else have a fan-less coralife and have problems with bulb life??
