Is anyone able to throw a few links of some good quality SE bulbs in the 14k-20k range.
Now that were talking more color. Has anyone looked into the 22k SE bulb b megachrome. Does a higher Kelvin rating do anything to coral growth or is it mainly looks
The higher the K
typically the slower the growth and the more blue color. Since you have no actinic and a SE set up, I would highly recommend going with the Radiums. They are a nice crisp white with just enough blue color on my Galaxy Electronic ballast. I know the 14k DE Phoenix looks pretty much just crisp white and looks better with actinic. Go to my build thread to see the growth I am getting with Radiums. Check the last few pages of it you will see my Pink Lemonade Acro, a monti and a Garf Bonsai Acro.
