Hi HAJA,

Sorry, I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

They wont tell you and will not provide you with any spectral output data on the bulb.

If you want a bulb similar (but better) to the 9325K use the AGA 8000K.

I'm not too excited about getting a 'mystery' bulb from AH Supply, especially when I've put so much time into researching bulbs.
I can't find the AGA 8000K bulb online.
I think I will go with one of the 6,700K/10,000K bulbs, either the Coralife Colormax or the Current SunPaq Dual Daylight. I think the 6,700K/10,000K bulbs are a good combination between the growth promoting 6,700K and the 10,000K evening out the colors in the tank. The current looks like it is cheaper and more readily available, so it will probably be the winner.

The Coralife bulbs are heavy in the green spectrum output and this wont do much for your plants and I dont know much about Sunpaq. I'd recommend the Philips PLL950s but now that they are making them in the US (and not supplied from Europe) the spectral output is not as good as the European ones. This is the main reason I stopped using CF bulbs as you can no longer get good plant bulbs.

Here's a link for a few others >

Beware that Current is in the process of changing a lot of there bulbs. Many they are simply taking off the market and replacing them with another off brand bulb.
