When is it possible the Halide's can damage your eyes?

Or do other types of aquarium lights damage your eyes too?

If you don't like the fixture above, what do you think would be better?
I was looking at this one because I thought the price was good, and I thought metal halides were good fixtures (not sure).

Thank you.

Ohhh ok, so no matter which fixture I pick, eyes could be damaged. It isn't just Metal Halides. Thanks

The only thing I don't like about that light is it has PC bulbs instead of t5's. Otherwise it seems like an ok light. Some people would say go for the 250 watts MH but I think with the depth of a 125g it would be fine. BUT if you went bigger or deeper of a tank you might run into issues.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ahhhh, I see what is the difference on the kind of corals I can keep with this one, as opposed to the one we were talking about? Which one do you like better?

Could the PC bulbs be switched out? If so, how much would that cost?


Thanks!
