TetraManiac E14 was just a guess...looking at them the E27 just looks huge online ill have to see what i actually have

james1542 I don't know what light fixture you have, could be the "US Standard" Which a quick google search appears to be E26, or "medium base" in USA. OOPs the E27 appears to be the EU medium size. IF yours says E17, then you need "US-Intermediate" or just look for E17.

james1542 When you can get LED's that point in the right direction to begin with, these don't make much sense. This is a replacement for an incandescent light bulb, so it's designed to throw light in all directions. Thus, most of your light, your going to have to try to reflect back to the tank, during which process a good % will be lost. 450 lumens isn't much to begin with.

They do make mogul based LED "spot lights" where all the led's are facing the right direction. they don't have tremendous wattage, but it should be a much lower number of diodes(than the corn cob) which typically means you will get greater depth penetration.
