One of our favorite HID lamp manufacturer Ushio will soon be coming to market with the new G12 metal halide lamp form factor. The first bulbs will be available in 150w 10k flavors in a few months but 14 and 20k flavors will follow soon after. There is some discussion about bringing 70w lamps to market but there currently are no 70w g12 lighting units available for aquarium use in the U.S. But were gonna stroll back over to AquaticLifes booth and see if we can convince them to do something about that.
