Default WBT/WTT: 65watt PC

I just got my new Satellite fixture but one of the bulbs is a dual actinic, Current brand, square pin, 65watt. I would love to trade this for a new 55/65 watt square pin of suitable plant spectrum. An 8000k from Hellolights.com would be perfect but anything between 6700K and 10000k, square pin woudl be fine.

Here is a link to the bulb I have:

Let me know if you want to trade!

Hellolights has 8000K bulbs? I didn't see any, and I am looking to replace my bulbs with exactly that spectrum.

They have had them for a long time. However, while looking at the site last night I could not find them either.....

I think I saw All-Glass Aquarium was making some 8000K PC lamps....but I have a hard time trusting their quality, or if they are even true 8000K spectrum.

Well, 8000k is not the "spectrum". The K rating is the color the light appears to our eyes. More than anything it is an average of the entire spectural output and only gives a vague indication of the actual appearance. I have tried the All-Glass 8000k and frankly, bleckkk! Personally I find the colors very fake and the bulb is pretty dim. However, some people like the color produced by the bulbs so it is really a personal opinion.

Now, who wants to buy or trade for the Dual actinic?
