    Hey

    I was browsing through our local electric shop then I saw a metal hallide lamp from osram! It was rated as daylight globe so it must be 6000k plus and it was R240 with an industrial fitting (E40) so it can just be fitted into an industrial socket! This only cost R25 with som wire and you have a metal hallide.

    I'm not sure if it's the same but I couldn't buy it , first wanted to here what you guys would think...

    The colour will be very yellow - will not look good on a tank.

    in the old days we simply used 1 x osram powerstar 250w bulbs to illuminate a 1.2 and it worked fine we needed to add actinics to get a whiter colour and never used reflectors.. i do agree the bulb you have pictures will be yellow according to the specs given.. id be looking more in the 10000k region..

    Also looked at these and did some research ...they make a 10 000 K one, called aqualite, pricey though
