I'm planning on getting the following, anyone with comments on them ?

2x

to go over my 120g tank.

That would be it for the lighting. I'm looking to have a nice blue crisp look and I heard that the Phoenix bulbs were the best. :rolleyes:

I love my phoenix bulbs. You however can get a much better deal at illuming.com (250w for 55 bucks, shipping included).

Dang that is an awesome price! :D It looks like shipping is not included though??? Do you have some sort of 'connection' I don't know about?

I just bought them for my system. I can't wait to see how they look and how well the corals will like them

I just replaced my AB bulbs with the phoenix, I do like the color but I have not been running them long enough to say more than that :)

They were the 250 watt DE 10k, the bulb said 13K. I like the softer blue look. the Phoenix reming me of the 400 watt radium on the hqi ballast, just not as bright.
