Anybody using the Aqua Connect DE 250 Watt bulbs. I hear color is similar to Phoneix but intensity is supposed to be stronger. Anybody using these bulbs please state your input and any pics would be great along with ballast type.

I have a AC and a Phoneix...i cant tell the difference with my eyes. Both grow corals well.
When it's time to change out the AC i'm going to replace it with a Phoneix

everyone says they look exactly the same... Infact the rumor is that they are exaclt y the same bulb... If you like at sanjay's tests the spectral plots are identical and the PAR is pretty much the same.

Save some money and get the Phoenix bulbs...

I've used both. They are the same. The bulbs look the same physically. They have the same output and spectrum per Sanjay. That seals it for me.
