10000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM, Double-Ended Information



Part #: XDE150/D

You can quickly provide your marine inhabitants with a tropical environment inside your aquarium, without having to purchase expensive ornaments, by installing the 150 Watt 10000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM Pet Store. Provided that you own the appropriate fixture for this special lamp, you will be pleased to see that this will do more than just illuminate the contents of your glass case. Unlike other brands, this has a double-ended design, which enables you to set this up more securely without using cables or suction cups. This is definitely a great substitute for minute bulbs, which are less powerful in terms of the brightness that it will radiate.

This lamp can emit a white beam, which is suitable for the creation of a daylight cycle within the tank, allowing your fish to bask in the radiance of this make-shift sun. If you want to provide your inhabitants with a 24-hour cycle to encourage them to breed and propagate, then you will be pleased to know that you can use blue phosphors to get a nighttime effect. This is quite durable, and it is designed to tolerate humid and wet environments. It doesn’t need a reflector because its light will already be spread evenly once it is switched on.

The 150 Watt 10000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM is truly a great equipment, which will bring out the best features of your marine inhabitants.

switch fromm 14k to 10k! Product Review by PAUL VORESIS (Posted on 1/26/10)
Rating
Average

Comments: i recently switched from 14k phoenix to 10k xm. as far as looks go, these lights are yellow and make my tank look horrible. none of my sps colors show well; greens, reds, blues, and purples all look bad. as for growth rate, (which is why i switched to 10k) most corals are continuing to grow at the same rate as with the 14k with exception of a red milli and a palmers blue milli. both these millis were at the bottom of my 24" tall aquarium and have not grown at all since being placed there as of 3 months ago. within a week of installing the 10k's both corals have new growth on their tips and are now growing at a relatively fast pace. happy with growth, not at all happy with the color and overall look of the tank. will switch back to phoenix or radium 20k in 5-6 months after this "grow-out phase"

Second Dud and counting! Product Review by JOSEPH BRAD WESTCOTT (Posted on 10/11/09)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: I have used Ushio 10K lamps for almost nine years and have had nothing but outstanding performance and results in my SPS corals.Well, I did some homework on some of the work Sanja Joshi publishes on PAR, PFD, and CCT numbers and the XM 250W DE lamp had some great numbers. So, I thought I would buy a couple this time around when it came time to replace the Ushios.I bought two and one of them is performing beautifully and really does seem to be visibly brighter than the Ushios. The problem is that the second XM lamp is yellow and not very bright. So, I sent it back ($8 shipping) and got another one. Guess what, same problem. I know it is not the ballast because I have swapped lamps. So, I have to send another lamp back. Another $8 shipping charge? This lamp replacement is getting expensive and I am not convinced I am getting a quality item. I never had this problem with the Ushios in all these years.Now, I am really at the point where I would rather go back with the Ushios.Make your own decision as to whether or not you trust this lamp. I am just stating the facts.

So far so good Product Review by PAUL (Posted on 2/26/08)

Great!

Comments: I like the bulb. The color seems to be whitish w/ hints of blue.
I replaced a 20k bulb with this one because I am looking for more coral growth. With the 20k bulb, growth was at a standstill.

My tree coral looks like it hit puberty and my xenia are sprouting new branches. I'm very pleased.

Great!

Comments: I got these bulbs to replace the stock ones that came in my Coralife Pro series. Work great and are like the ones I took out (1 yr old ). They will take a couple of days running till you get the actual brightness that they are going to be,(common thing with M/H lighting.
Service from Marine Depot was, as always GREAT!!!
