Hi fireshrimp. Yes I do.... for actinics I would not go to such an extent as Geisemann. Perhaps for the 10000K white lamps - due to the increased PAR output compared to other "cheaper" brands of T5's. BUT actinics do not do MUCH for the corals, except for a more pleasant looking blue hue in your tank.....

So - I am not sure if AquaH2O is still selling to the public - but perhaps see if they sell T5 actinics still..... +-R105 per tube. Last I heard that they were not selling to the public anymore.

Otherwise - try "The Lamphouse". They only sell globes..... Their Sylvania's are not bad at all...
As I said - by all means - go for Geisemann if you want.... or perhaps ATI. I have seen a tank or two with these globes on - looks magnificent. BUT not specifically the actinics/blue globes.....

I'm rather fond of my Sylvania blue T5's, cheap and work like a bomb, I think they are about R160 roughly.
