20000K 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.

Excellent 20k bulb! Product Review by DH (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I'm very pleased with the coloration of this 20k bulb. I recently had to switch away from a long time vendor because it appears that they have changed their OEM bulb manufacturer (the newer versions appear yellow compared side by side with their previous bulbs).

Needless to say, this bulb has the same crisp blue'ish white color that I expect from a 20k bulb. Now it's time to replace the rest of my bulbs. SPS has won my business!

I highly recommend it!

Not All Blue Product Review by JOSEPH SCOTT (Posted on 6/21/10)

Average

Comments: I ordered these lights and when I put them in I had three different shades of blue. One was really blue, one looked exactly like a 14K and one looked like a straight day light 10K. For one my corals hate them, they have closed up and I have three different colors in my tank. Do not buy these for the shimmering affect, you get better affect from 10K with blue LED and and water flow across the top of the water.

Blue Life SPS 250w 20k Product Review by PATRICK MATHEWS (Posted on 3/4/10)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: I decided to try a different brand of bulb, so I went with Blue Life SPS 250w 20k. It looks more like a 14k ushio. I have always stuck with Ushio because of color(blue) and for price and growth. Although I have noticed nice growth with the SPS bulb, I'm very unhappy with color. Beware that they will not take a return on bulbs because of color, so go with a different bulb if you want the 20k color.
