    I'm just wondering who is using metal halide lighting and what bulbs / lamps do you use with them. Thanks.

    Strange, the link works for me?

    anyway i meant the ones on the bottom of this page - http://www.viclite.com/astraaq.htm

    I will have them all in the same setup soon so will be able to compare directly to the ADA bulb

    Thanks James , yes I was aware of that link, what size tanks do you have the MH lighting on out of interest?

    Anyone else using MH lighting?

    one 3' and one 4'

    I would only use MHs if i had the T5s to go with them as i only have them on for the midday bursts for 3-4hrs, otherwise it is too much light with just MHs on these size tanks
