Hi everyone,
I have a Coralife CF fixture that came with a bulb I didn't like (part actinic) so I bought a different one (6700K/10000K Dual Daylight).Today I noticed that the label on the fixture says 28 watts, but the bulb I'm using is 32 watts. My questions are "Am I getting the full power out of this bulb?" and "Is it possible to go to a higher wattage bulb too?" Thanks for any advice.

Nope, it's the same size (12.75") bulb... the new(er) one is a Current SunPaq 32w bulb... so maybe since its a different company the wattage is also different. Well, I guess it was an improvement over the 1/2 actinic bulb, but I'm kind of bummed I didn't end up with a wattage increase like I thought I did. :|
