Yeah Rusty the MH I do like, just don't like the extra heat going into the tank.

I have cheap bulbs ATM was thinking of going XM250's anyone recommend any other bulbs...? Don't really want to spend more than $100 each.

XM are a great mix of colour, intensity, and price. They tend to last a while too which is a plus.

Yeah was thinking the 15K's the 20K's are just too blue for me I think. Hopefully will have my new LED's soon as well can't wait. Will be running the MH's for about 2-3hrs a day still, Going to mix it up a bit.
