The last time I checked (admittedly about 10 years ago) GE didn't
make a Chroma-anythig in 18". You can ask them directly though,
call 1-800-555-1212 (800 directory assistance) and ask for the
number of the GE Answer Line. Call them as ask if they make one
this small. Ask them to mail you a (free) catalog) while you're
ar it.

I've seen daylight bulbs that small and the current trend is for
GE to replace the old daylight bulbs with more modern (and what used
to be hard to get) SPX65 and Chroma 50 tubes.
