10000K Metal Halide Bulb - Blue Life SPS (South Pacific Sunlight), Double-Ended Information




Benefits:
South Pacific Sunlight (SPS) Metal Halide bulbs are designed to replicate the beautiful shimmering light of your fish and coral`s natural environment. These bulbs are specifically engineered to enhance the polyp extension, color, and growth of your corals. Unlike some other bulbs, SPS Metal Halide bulbs are manufactured with built-in igniters (starters) that allow them to be used with any type of ballast.

SPS Metal Halide bulbs are ideal for most Acroporas (SPS), Anemones, Clams, Hard Corals (LPS), Leathers, Mushrooms, Polyps, Soft Corals, and Xenia.

Available in 175 watt, 250 watt & 400 watt In your choice of:
Crisp Blue—10,000k representing 10-30 Ocean Depth Feet (ODF)
Mid Sea Blue—14,000k representing 30-60 Ocean Depth Feet (ODF)
Deep Sea Blue—20,000k representing 60-90 Ocean Depth Feet (ODF)

Important:
Do not touch bulb glass with fingers. As with all Metal Halide bulbs, oils from your hands may create hot spots that can cause damage. Hold bulb glass with cardboard bulb sleeve, latex glove, or a clean towel. It is recommended that you replace this or any other Metal Halide Bulb once every 9-12 months depending on ballast and bulb intensity. This will keep the ecosystem vibrant and healthy.

Care:
Salt and dust can hamper the efficiency of your bulb, occasional cleaning is recommended. For cleaning, allow bulb to cool thoroughly, and then remove from socket using a cloth or paper towel. Hold metal end, and then wipe glass and metal with alcohol applied with a paper towel. Allow bulb to dry before operating.

Great! try One Product Review by MICHAEL OLIER (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: Coloration is excellent and this bulb provides the intense WHITE light I was looking for in a good 10k bulb with a fine price point.

nice 10Ks Product Review by FRANK CAUFIELD (Posted on 1/16/10)

Excellent!

Comments: The light is very intense. It is a bit yellow but no more than what you should expect with 10Ks. I supplement with LED atinics and get a fairly good color. Not great color but I am growing my corals and need 10Ks to do that. When they have grown out I will switch to 14Ks.

Unsatisfactory

Comments: The bulbs were described to be a pure white light. Even with a burn in period, the color was very yellow.

not bad Product Review by PAUL LACHER (Posted on 6/20/08)

Comments: still in the break in period. They say these bulbs can take over 100 hours to show their true colors. Right now I am getting more of a brownish color, but they say it is supposed to be this way at first. I have 100 K H.O. bulbs as well and they are a totally different color ( more white). My corals love it though some have actually doubled in size with this light compared to the high outputs. I can not wait to see this bulb after the break in period. I use a couple of powerheads at the surface to create waves and it give the shimmer effect that makes corals happy. Does not show much blue though. I would probally get the 14000K next time. You still get nice colors out of the corals with this lamp, but it does not pick up the black light type colors from the corals. Maybe it will turn more blue after the break in period.
