14000K Metal Halide Bulb - AquaMaxx, Double Ended Information



Part #: 10358

Lighting for coral reef aquariums is much more complicated than lighting for a house. Corals have needs that are heavily dependent on light. Hard corals, in particular, generate their exoskeletons with photosynthesis. Without intense light, they will not be able to form their exoskeletons properly.

This is the reason why lighting is a very important factor to consider when you own coral reef aquariums. You can't just walk in a hardware store and grab a couple of lamps. Luckily, the 150-Watt 14000K Metal Halide Bulb - Aquamaxx, Double Ended from Pet Store is made to solve that problem.

This bulb gives off a very crisp and clean white light with a slightly bluish tint. This combination of white and blue works perfectly together to nicely bring out the vibrant pigments of the corals. The result is a stunning display that no other lamp can deliver. This bulb also has a high-intensity light that doesn't need supplementation - unless you want to add more to improve the simulation of nighttime and daytime.

The 150-Watt 14000K Metal Halide Bulb - Aquamaxx also is perfect for tanks that are at least two feet deep. The light it gives off is intense enough to reach deep areas within such tanks.

Aquamaxx 150 14k Product Review by CHRIS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I just replaced my 14k Phoenix with the Aquamaxx 14k a few days ago.It's actually a fairly nice bulb, but it does look a lot different than my Phoenix. The Phoenix is a crisper white and the Aquamaxx has a deeper blue tint to it. My corals are happy and my wallet couldn't beat it since I got it on special in Dec. The neon greens pop out more, but I noticed that my blues and purples kind of blend in with the coraline algae now. Oranges aren't as vibrant, but still look good. I'm hoping it'll change a little once the bulb breaks in.

Great!

Comments: I put these in my 90 gallon reef (2 bulbs) and was a little surprised at how blue they are. In Fact there is little difference between these and my 96 watt actinc blue power compacts..........just brighter. They give kind of an early evening light appearance to the tank.
