I currently have a fishneedit 150 watt 8000k MH bulb over my 29. The 6700 was way too green for me and this is a bit blue for me. I need a bulb that has a lot of red/pink in it. I cant seem to find a MH that has red in it, as I am used to my 9325k GE PC lights. Can someone please help me here I cant find anything on google.

Try using a different brand of bulbs. Even at the same color temp different brand bulbs can look very different. I used Hamilton Technology bulbs when I had a MH fixture and was always very happy with them. I've never seen a MH bulb with alot of red in it though.

I am currently using their 8000k bulbs and also have one of their 6700. Great value, and good bulbs, but no where near the red output I would like. Im used to the 9325s :(
yeah if you want the red like the 9235's you'll probably need to add some t5's to the setup, i find my 8000k MH or any other MH bulbs don't have as much red in them =)
