    WHy Coralvue Cesar? Just curious.

    If I were to pick the two, I'd pick the XM's.

    Let me know where you are ordering from , maybe I can order with you and split shipping. I need another XM10k.

    Im ordering with Thamarindthai (Dang).

    Why coralvue?... well i like the appearance... also i dont plan to supplemement it with actinics.

    Here is XM20K...


    and here is Coralvue20K...


    and here is what im using right now... SunAquatics 10K


    Also im using M59 and might not be able to go Hamilton 14K.
    Also Im basing my decision from JB NY's 250 watt data on standard PFO... since we still dont have coralvuew data from Sanjay...

    And also consistent with "Redeyereef" observations from his new Licor light meter...

    The 400 XM20ks will turn whiter after burn in on standard M59 magnetic/coil ballast.

    Where are you ordering from, and if you haven't ordered yet...let me know.

    if you go with Custom Aquatics don't forget to use the 5% off coupon for Reef Frontiers. I don't think Marine Depot offers that. All my business has went to Custom Aquatics lately.

    Cesar - just go to the Sponsors page and scoll down to Custom Aquatics and click on the link. It should add the Coupon automatically to your shopping cart. I don't remember what the code was....
