yes they are orlando, they're not too pinkish like the geissman aquaflora's and not too blue like the 10k's. Just perfectly in the middle like amano's tanks. l believe he uses 8's in his fixtures as well.

I used to use 8000ks when I used to use T8s. I liked them very much. IMO, 6500ks are to yellow and 10000ks a little bit too blue. With the T5HOs, I've tried mixing 10000ks with 6500ks and pink bulbs but, it's difficult to get the color I like. I am glad to see the 8000ks coming out for T5HOs.

I am a fan of 8k bulbs and have them currently in my MH fixtures. Thinking about going to T5 because of the heat. When will you have info up on the fixtures?
