I went to petco the other day and was looking at the t5 bulbs they had and there was one labled "Max Plant Growth" where all the other bulbs had a K range. It was the same price as the 10,000k bulbs but I couldn't find a K rating on it anywhere. It was 23w if I remember correctly. Anyone used anything like this before?

Yeah I'm using the 54w T5HO version. It is like 4700k. The light comes out pinkish yellow. More pink than yellow though. I also have a zoomed sunlight bulb that is around 7000k I believe.

Thanks guys. Plague, has the "max plant growth" and "ultrasun" bulbs made a big difference in plant growth? I have 2 23w 10,000k bulbs and am considering getting these. I will need 2 new bulbs soon anyways.

TBH I can't even tell since I used seachem line of fertilizing. I also use the plant growth T8 version on my 10g. There it does something since I only dose flourish.

I think the bulb doesn't matter as long as it covers the full spectrum. What I like about the plant growth bulb though is that it also has I.R. light. Have no clue how that helps but it is there :D
