Has anyone here ever used or heard of BVL metal halide bulbs? i couldn't find much about them on the web. only that they took over soem japanese company sometime back which made exellent lighting products for reefs.
Someone even said they were better than coralife lights. (this was in some japanese forum)
I am asking because this is the only brand which has 10000k and higher MH bulbs available here. And i am thinking of getting a couple of 150W, 10000k ones for myself, just wanted to know if anyone here has ever had any exeprience with these.

I brought the bulbs for reefers on IAH.
Quiet a few are using them.
I was bringing in 8000K MH bulbs for my planted tanks and made a mass order for other planted tank guys, I included the 14K and 20K bulbs as these were not easily available for reefers here in India, and the combined order let me bargain a discount. I have a few left over, as always, a couple who preordered did not take the bulbs.
I don't have a marine setup so I haven't used the BLV Nepturion reef bulbs.
As to what guys who bought have to say, you'll have to ask them, depends on if they want to share info.
I have no feed back except that they haven't complained to me about them.
