I use Radiums, great color and good growth. It is the bulb that Steve at Reeffarmers uses.

IMO, these are the best 400 watt SE out there..Its almost a must to use the HQI ballast with the Radium. If you use this combo look at replacing the bulb atleast every 6 months if not sooner.

If your using a standard ballast I'd try the 20K XM..

I don't like the looks of my pieces under the XM at all. It might be over par on the tank I used it though.

Have you tried the Radium Steve?

Only Radium 250's on an Icecap. My 400's are all standard mag ballasts. I've downgraded all but one to standard 250's since I was frying everything.
