    I just got a 250W and 150W MH pendants from fishneedit on eBay, and chose the 6700K bulbs he had available.

    I have seen that the various ADA bulbs, and some mentioned in various threads here are in the ~8000 K region. After some searching, the only bulbs I can find are the ADA ones, which are expensive as per other ADA products.

    Are there other sources for ~8000 K bulbs?

    Also, is there much difference in quality between the various manufacturers of bulbs?

    I use them as well, I like them, not much between these and the ADA bulbs.

    I have not used them on an ADA ballast light set up(ADA or the WG bulbs). But I might take a couple I have to see what they do at Aqua Forest in terms of "PAR" comparisons.

    Then we can know if it's the bulb and how the colors compare using ADA ballast and fixtures.

    Not a bad idea........I'm stopping by there today on my way back from a client, might as well.

    Regards,
