Burnt bulb, will my crypts last???

784 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Tiff

I have a Coralife fixture that's a year old and I recently replaced both bulbs. The 6700 bulb already burnt out on me and I won't be able to get another one for a week (due to shipping). Will my crypts make it with just the Colormax bulb? My LFS has a T5HO bulb I think may fit so not sure if I should get that for the time being? The bulbs in my fixture are currently on a NO.

Should be okay, just a little slower growth. Might be worth to have a spare bulb on hand, but for a week or two it will survive the lower light just fine.
Thanks for the replies! I will definitely try and keep some handy next time!
