I don't think it is dead. When I pick it up it is still tightly wound and feels like im holding really thick fishing line.. just as i did when i first bought it.
Thanks ccCapt. The reflector I have should be fine then? Here is a picture of it...
So since it's more watts that makes the bulb stronger? It's 6500k so I assume that's about the same as my 6700k.
Edit| It's not floating because I think the sump flow is pushing it to the bottom.
Edit2| There's about 250gph flow through the refugium.. too much?
