i have a VHO ballast with 4 normal output flourescent lights in it. a NO light that is 48 inches long is 40 watts, but a VHO light is 110 watts. do they make grow lights in VHO? if not, could i use aquarium VHO lights?
here are the specs of vho aquarium lights:
Actinic White (12000K) = 50% actinic 03 blue phosphors & 50% white spectrum(triband). High performance upgrade which are great for corals, live rock, and related marine life.
Super Actinic R (420nm peak) = 100% blue spectrum. These are the most widely used aquarium bulbs on the market. They are great for reef applications and coral health.
AquaSun (10000K) = 100% white spectrum.
All URI lamps come with 180` internal reflector which allow 40% more light output
i got this info from marinedepot.com
these lights are used to grow coral, because they have a symbiotic algea inside that gives them energy, and since algea is a plant, maybe these lights will work my cps?
