    20000K BLV MH is the best bet. It is a blue-white colour.

    I would avoid reeftek halides and T5's. Agree with Manic on BLV's.

    Just find the thread where @RiaanP compared the T5 reefteks to the aqua medics. You clearly get what you pay for.

    BLV is Ushio overseas which is one of the top rated MH bulbs over there.
