well coral vue bulbs are great in color spectrum and PAR but they emit a lot of radiation or UV. Espescially in the burn-in period. New bulbs take about 100 or so hours to "burn-in" and allow the specrtum to settle a little. I am no expert but IME during the burn-in especially whem coming from an inferior light source you should shorten your photo period a lot. I went to 3 hours in the morning with a 2 hour beak and another 3 hours or so and ended up coking a few things even with the shorter period. Just use caution and keep an eye on things, it will eventually settle down to normal as everything gets used to the new lighting.

I wish I had a nickel for every miracle that you easily tricked me into. -Chris Robinson
