ADA 8000K 150w HQI Bulb (picture)


I have an aquapod (24 gallon). Its currently lit with 2-32W 6500k/10000k Power compact bulbs, but ive decided to get crazy and put a 150w HQI fixture on the tank. I purchased the 20" 150W Sunpod HQI lamp (with 12 Moonlight LEDs) but it comes with a 14,000k bulb. I want to change out the bulb but its really hard finding a 6500k bulb for this HQI fixture. I did, though, come across this 8000K bulb by ADA and wanted to get some opinions on it. Your suggestions and comments are GREATLY appreciated! thank you!



Regards,



Sun Kim

Jeff Senske from www.aquariumdesigngroup.com swears by them..... They are specifically designed for plants. I cant see how you can go wrong. I plan to use them in the future myself. You can get them at www.adgshop.com

150 watts of halide on a 24 gallon? Insane. Which is why I like it. Please do a journal, I want to see that bad boy in action.

Actually, I found 14,000K HQI bulbs look pretty good... almost like pure sunlight. Have you tried the bulb out yet? I've posted a pic showing my tank lit with 14,000K (Coralife brand):
