    Hi,

    I just bought two 250 metal halide fixtures from Duane, thanks Duane!:thumbup:
    The question is which replacement bulbs should I get (10 000, 14 000 or 20 000)?

    Do you have supplement T5 units?

    If not, I would go with 14000

    If you got T5 units as well, then it will depend on what globes you have in the T5. But I would go with 10000, and more blue on T5. So that peak time of the day the light is more "natural".
