reefraff, I glad we can talk instead of argue sometimes I feel I come as being a ****.SO sorry if so.
Bulb to bulb comparison the vho
are brighter, but watt for watt they are not.Same thing with pc
example: 1 48" 40w NO
doesn;t not compare to a 48" 110w VHo
but 3x 48" 40w does equal 1 48" 110w vho
they are both the same type of lighting.Just diff packages 120w of NO
=120w of vho
it just takes up alot more space.I think everyone just likes pc
cause they look better and have been fooled into thinking they are "brighter".
Side note: Must be nice to have a extra laying around.Lucky fool
