This item has a double-ended design, allowing you to set this up in any way that you see fit, whether horizontal or vertical, etc. It also requires a special fixture that can accommodate a pair of pins for the socket. It is simple to install and operate.

What’s unique about this lighting is not its Kelvin color rating of 14,000, which is enough to penetrate through the deepest parts of your tank. It is not even its intricate construction that is without fault. Rather, it is its versatility, enabling you to utilize this bulb for growing plants, heating up the water, and just plain illuminating its contents. It is an excellent product, which can satisfy any needs outside of decorative purposes. Its use is not limited to the aquarium, as well. This can be installed on ponds, waterfalls, etc.

Comments: Awesome bulbs for reef tanks. Gives great colors and sunlight effect in tank. I have a deep tank and these bulbs provide enough light for even the lowest corals.One of the two shipped had the ceramic end loose on it but customer shipped a new one out that day to replace it.I have been using this bulb for over 2 years now and will stay the Iwasaki brand.

Comments: I got 2 of the 250w 14Ks to run on Lumatek dimmable ballasts. I was hoping for the suggested white with a hint of blue, when run at 250w they are extremely yellow (HQI setting is worse). I will say they are VERY VERY bright but no where near 14k, more like a 10k or LESS. If I run them at 175w they have more of the white with a hint of blue but you loose a LOT of brightness. If your planning to run a lot of blue supplements then this would be a great bulb but my goal was to run without supplements.

Comments: I have always used in the past the Coralife 10,000K. These Iwasaki 250 W 14,000 k are perfect. They are very clear. No yellow on them. It is a more vibrant look than the 10,000K I like them amd the corals love them.

Comments: After reading reviews from other customers who tried these bulbs in their aquariums, I decided to try them out for myself. I am very please with them. They are a nice white with enough blue to look natural. Color was one of the most impotrant aspects to me as my tank is a major focal point in my home. I had previously tried Hamliton 14k and they were far to blue for my liking. As long as they have a acceptable life span I would buy them again.

Comments: This bulb surprised me with its brightness. I've ran XM 15k, Phoenix 14k (also a great bulb, if you want more blue), Icecap 14k, and Ushio 20k (too dim), and the Iwasaki 14k is by far the brightest and whitest. It is what you would expect from a quality 10k bulb, pure, crisp white light with very little blue and no yellow. This bulb looks great with my 96w actinic pc light. The craftsmanship of this bulb is excellent as well. If you want a shallow reef, natural sunlight look in your tank with fast growth then buy this bulb. I highly recommend it.

Comments: Really expensive... but really worth it. I won't know the longevity of the bulb for awhile (I hope), but so far so great! I'm actually going to buy another one to balance my reef.

Comments: Took two days for full coloration, but it was worth it. The lighting is just slightly blue to give my corals a real nice radiance.
