    Coralife has just released their new 250w Aqualight Metal Halide Pendant. I hate to say it, but they ruined a good thing. The 150w version is the most attractive double ended Metal Halide Pedant available in the US. Instead of sticking with this design, they increased the diameter by 3″, to a total of 12″, and changed the shape drastically. The photo to the right compares the two: 150 on the left, 250 on the right. 

    Perhaps they are looking to increase the spread and reduce hot spots with a larger reflector design, but I know when most are looking at individual pendants spread is not at the top of their list. What usually is, is looks, cost, and enough intensity to keep Acroporids and other high light animals alive.
