I have looked at a gazillion different T-5 bulbs and am asking T-5 users out there to let me know what they like.
I need to order some ASAP and am not sure what would be the absolute best bulb in a t-5.
Zoo Med Ulra Sun? Hagen Life Glo? etc etc.??

Any input would be appreciated!

GE6500 is a good t5HO bulb. Most of the others are for reefing. UVL makes some good bulbs also.

Giesemann are excellent bulbs, generally accepted as top line for t5ho's.

Just off a quick google you can find several retailers that sell them.

To add to this, I'm having a bit of trouble finding good t5ho 18w 18" 6500k bulbs.. anyone know where to find these?

Thanks!
uvl makes a t5ho bulb that small. I think nanotuners.com and premiumaquatics.com sells them.
