Okay, I've hit a snag and I'm hoping for some help.
I was planning on running T5's with my Icecaps, but since I have a Solar 1000 dimmer I want to deploy I can't use T5's. I just got a note back from Blueline (distributor of the Solar 1000 dimmer, that I cannot use T5 VHO bulbs with the dimmer. That leaves me with T8 and T12 VHO bulbs.
Does anyone have a recommendation of thier favorite T5 and T12 bulbs? I've been using ZooMed Flora Sun and Tropic Sun bulbs in my ODNO DIY fixture, but only because they are relatively easy to find and inexpensive. But I'm certainly open to other ideas from people who have greater experience.
Also, the Tech at Blueline emailed me that IceCap is out of business, but their website is up and thier phones still are connected. Does anyone have any information regarding this? I find it disturbing since I may need help from them to modify my ballasts to work with the Solar 1000 dimmer. When I called I could not connect to a live person, but did leave voicemail and have not heard back as yet.
