Hi again. Tomorrow I will be receiving the metal halide lamp. It will be from osram. 1 lamp 250 w 5.500 K. It's cost including the lighting body and it's elcetric systems about 100 euro (1 euro = 1 dollar). Which is quite cheap. If I chose to use 2 x 150 w I would have the problem that the 150w were only in 4200 K. Anyway 1 lamp can cover the triangle tank cause it will be placed in the center, while in regular tanks you cannot do that.
Just to compare a specialized metal halide product if found 2x150w costed 900 euros.... It was simply out of the question
