    replacing lights need help

    I have a 72in marine orbit t5 halide light fixture. Has 3 125 halide or maybe 250s can't remember and 8 36 in t5s. I'm clueless on which ones to buy all I know is don't want pink. If anyone knows which ones please let me know thanks

    bulbs? 20k radium and 16k fenix seem to be most popular on MH side. ATIl Blue + would be dominate choice for t5's.

    Lmao priced them out its gonna be a cheap load of money to change them out. 300 for the 3 mhs over 300 for the t5s. 600 for the bulbs might as well get new lights if my prices are right lol

    You should be able to get 8 t5 bulbs for around $160. Most people mix in 2 or 3 coral plus bulbs with the blue plus but they do have the pink hue you don't want.

    Where are they costing that much? I have to be honest my cheap 20k ebay bulbs are doing great for halides. You should be able to get 8 t5s for about 170. Or wait until you get Tpp coupon at swap for 20% off them. I spent 20.00 for my halide on ebay and it's working great. So it can be done for under 200.00 after coupon.
