Default DFW Source: Giesemann Midday Sun T5 HO Aquarium Bulb

Several members asked today if there is a local supplier who carries Giesemann Midday Sun T5 HO Aquarium Bulbs. Specialty Optical Systems is the source I mentioned.

Prices are as follows:

24 inch - 24w $19.95
36 inch - 39w $20.95
48 inch - 54w $21.95
60 inch - 80w $25.95

Prices do not include sales tax. Shipping is additional.

Here's a link to the bulbs: Giesemann Midday Sun T5 HO Aquarium Bulb

Remember also that next month we will be at True Percula. You might want to compare these prices with theirs. I have no idea how they compare but it would be nice to buy locally if the prices were the same.

they are both local, it just depends on prices and what area of the dfw you are in.

If the prices are close I will support a LFS rather than a lighting supply company.

Alas, the Giesemann Midday Sun only come as HO, and I need NO. Has anyone used the T5 NO Plantmax tubes that SOS sells?

I found a place called Lone Star Hydro that has the 48" Geissman bulbs listed on their website for $15.95. I am going to check them out at lunch today.

Sorry, had the location mixed
up with another store I was
looking at. Lone Star Hydro is
at:
1348 Motor Circle
Dallas, TX 75207
Here is a link to the bulbs:
lonestarhydroponics.com/
product-p/901588 .htm

I checked and I don't see anything that says that there is a minimum quantity or anything. I'll call before I head out there.

I called and they didn't have the Giesemann bulbs in stock. The Guy I talked to was going to check into ordering them and asked me to call back in a couple hours. I wound up not calling back because I found 6500k bulbs for $8 at another hydroponic shop. I figure for that price it was worth trying them out. I also went to DNA and got a Colormax bulb.
