I tried a yahoo search and didn't find much (8 hits)

Does bulb brand also matter???

I saw some Sunpaqs that are $10.00 more expensive than some other brand at AHSupply.

I want a white/bluish hue.

Any suggestions???

I tried the Lighting forum but there is much more traffic here.

10,000 K lights are more common and would probably satisfy the look you are trying to achieve.
I love the look 10,000K gives me. It's not blue at all, but definitely a nice colored white. It's not pink like many lower-spectrum bulbs, which is a big plus for me.

I have a 20,000K bulb also but it's making my swords fade compared to the ones under the 10,000K. (No wonder...But I don't have any other HQI, so it's the winnar until I score an old 10,000K one.)
I don't know if this will help you, but Tri City Tropical Fish lists some 65w 8800K bulbs in their discontinued section:
I do believe they also make straight/square pin adapters if you really want. I mean the bulbs are the same, just pins arranged differently.
