In answer to your post - Yes, I have an Ultralux
ballast on my hood and want to get the most out of it.
I can't seem to get any appropriate lights locally in
the Newburgh, NY area and that includes Home Depot. I
need the 3ft tubes. The LFS sell tubes that are way
over priced and have been sitting on the shelves so
long that they have oxidized metal surfaces. So I am
planning to place an order and have tubes shipped to
me. I simply need to know if the HO T5 or regular T5
are best and then what brand to order to as to get
around 5500k to 6500K which I like on my tanks.
Otherwise I need brand name for appropriate T8
tubes and that is what I will order.
I have PC's on my other tanks and am deligthed with
them. So far I have ordered those tubes from AH
Supply, but wonder if there is not a cheaper source
for those as well.
