I'm ready to purchase a new bulb and was wondering what the differecce is between them. Are they made by the same company? I have been running the Coralvue 10K for a while now and am happy withthe results, but while shopping (Hellolights) I noticed the Reeflux 12K. Between the Coralvue 10 and the 14K which I was leaning towards, I might have to try this 12K. Any one else try them or Reeflux in general? I dont want to go too blue because I have 2 96w pc 03.

I used XM 10k bulbs for several years and wanted a bit more blue. I spoke with David at Vu Technologies and he suggested the Reeflux 10k as he thought the 12k would be too blue with my 2x140w VHO super actinic supplementation.
I have had the Reeflux 10k for 10 months now and really like the colors. It brought my greens, blues and purples out much better where the XM didn't do so well. The reds are not as vibrant for some reason but I can live with that.

There is Reeflux 10k and 12k. I've tried both, and prefer the 10k- its a nice white, good colors and excellent growth. The 12k was pretty blue- way too much for my liking, but it was still nice looking.

Reefexotics.com also has them at good prices.

I am running the 10k with T5 actinic+ supplementation. I love the color. It is just blue enough, but not too blue.
