20000K Metal Halide Bulb - Blue Life SPS (South Pacific Sunlight), Mogul Base 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.

SPS 20K 250watt Product Review by whitewaterman (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: Great color during and after burn in. May upgrade to 5 stars after I've had it a few months.

Very unpleased Product Review by DAVE (Posted on 5/31/09)
Rating
Unsatisfactory

Comments: I am not real happy with these lights. At first, they were way too yellow, and after a bit of research found out they should whiten/blue up more after break-in, which was fine. They've now been broken in and I dislike them even more. They are not the same color. One side is definitely more yellow than the other side. I have always had the XMs before and been very happy. I am definitely going beck to them next time, I hope I can survive looking at these lights for six months. I guess this is what I get for trying to save a buck.

Nice bulb, poor spectrum Product Review by TAMARA MAHE (Posted on 4/2/09)

Average

Comments: I was happy witht he bulb, but it is not visibly 20,000 K. It is much to white. I have two set ups, one SPS and one Coralife. The Coralife spectrum is much more blue. I would have guess this was a 14,000 K bulb based on visible spectrum. The bulb works fine and if it wasn't next to my coralife I would have been pretty happy as I do like the 14,000 k look sometimes. But if you want something true 20,000 k don't get this one, but if you want a nice bulb just a little whiter than what you would expect from the 20,000K then it works just fine.

Excellent!

Comments: The 250 Watt Metal Halide Bulbs are the best. It allows me to use only two lights now instead of four. The lightning is fantastic and really shows off my coral.

excellent bulb Product Review by TYLER JANICIK (Posted on 3/23/08)

Excellent!

Comments: the color is nice and blue with enough white to make it look nice, corals look great they really pop out in the tank, SPS and LPS corals are putting on new growth, I've used this bulb for a two months and it is just as good as the Hamilton 20K I had been using previously
