I think an HID Metal Halide would be overkill. Besides that your link is for an HID High Pressure Sodium bulb. It is a 2000K bulb (2K). It would grow plants but it would be extremely red in color. Your colors would suck.Hi Guys,
I apologise if not commenting sooner _ frogparty _ snakepaprazzi, for your experiences on LED lights.
I figure I'm going to build from the ground up this time which means after the drainage is in place, I can hopefully get a much more concete idea of the wattage of lamps I need in conjunction with the species of orchids I choose.
Wow, that was a lot of fancy words above! xD
Because I'm working with only 20" across, I'm actually toying going Metal Halide and with at least a fan inside. Mounting should be a prob but my question is what do we think of this product by Sun Systems.

Thank you kindly,
Take a look at these: http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/sp...gle-dawn-mixed-6-5-4-5k-leds-grow-plants.htmlJust having some issues finding a good brand of a LED fixture. Has anyone tried those panels? The only one I could find threw off way too much red for my tastes.
I do but I don't have any in the tanks that have the LED bulbs. I have only had these bulbs a few months, but the plants in the tanks have really nice color and I like the bulbs so much that I would love to change the lights on all of my tanks.Thank you!
Do you keep orchids Azure? And if so they are doing well under LEDs?
