15000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM, Double-Ended Information



Part #: XDE150/DB

Metal halide lamps are more popular choices for aquarium lighting compared to incandescent lamps. Metal halide lamps can produce really intense and strong light that is five times as bright as the light produced by incandescent ones. Metal halide lamps can also reach deeper than other kinds of lamps. But in spite of their power and intensity, metal halide lamps come in compact sizes so they're perfect for the smaller aquariums.

Metal halide lamps also last for long time. They have a life that spans anywhere between 15,000 to 20,000 hours, which is ten times as long as incandescent lamps that last between 1,500 to 2,000 hours only.

If you're already convinced to get metal halide lighting for your aquarium, it's best to go for the 15-Watt 15000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM from Pet Store. This double-ended lamp gives off a bright white light with just the right tinge of blue. The blue tint complements fish's and corals' natural pigmentation more than any other hue.

The 15-Watt 15000K Metal Halide Bulb - XM works well with either an electronic ballast or metal halide ballast, which makes it very versatile. It can also be used with actinic lamps if you want a stronger blue tint.

Not Blue on the double ended. Product Review by MARK WUESTENBERG (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This is a very nice color, it's not blue. I also ordered a 15,000 K on the single end bulb and it's to blue. Double end it's good, I think you'll like it.

Nice bulb Product Review by BILL SCHROEDER (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: These bulbs have great color. I have used 10000K, and 14000K, both other brands. The XM are bright, crisp, and bring out the colors in my corals.

Great!

Comments: One of them burned out after only three months, using it 9 hours a day. The other one is still working though. Very nice color, it's doesn't look blue.

Don't need VHO's Product Review by MARK A WUESTENBERG (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I use three of these bulbs. With this bulb you can do without the VHO's. It's a very nice light blue which brings out the colors. Anything lower than a 15000k I would suggest VHO's working together.

I review my review Product Review by MARK WUESTENBERG (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I replaced that 15000k that burned out with a 14000k and must say the 15000 looks much better. The 14 almost looks yellow, wife and kids hate the 14. 15 does look bluer compared to the 14.
