Thanks for the feedback on the cheapies MH but I think I may decide to go for the exspensive one. What brand do you think makes the crispest, whitest bluest 20 k 400 watt mogul base? Do they have a higher output then the cheap ones? Is that why they cost more? Unfortunately there are no comparison pics and everyone claims they have the whitest blue. Hopefully you can help me out so I can choose the right bulb. I only have the one 400 watt fixture in the middle of the tank so I need it as bright as possible. and I have mostly softies.
thanks everyone. BTW I have a Hamilton fixture if that makes a difference.

I love my Reeflux 20ks and everyone that has seen them seems to as well.

I tested reeflux 12Ks side by side with Ushio 20K, the RL were more blue.

I liked Radiums the best. I did put a $20 ebay 20k in beside them once and couldn't tell much of a difference at all. I think the problem is the cheaper bulbs don't hold there color for long though.
