I'm not sure if your main concern is color, but it's really the ballast that will make a difference with the Phoenix 14K. If you run an electronic ballast it will burn a bit more blue. If you run an hqi ballast it burns a bit more white with a hint of blue. It's a nice looking bulb either way. You won't need actinics to suppliment and it has good PAR.

I plan on running an HQI ballast, and that is exactly the color I am looking for white with a hint of blue. I saw a Phoenix 150 at a LFS but it looked bluer then the 250. I will have to ask what ballast it is being run on.

If you have some pics you can post, I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks

Mine started out pretty blue on the Aqua Medic HQI ballast, but burned in more white over time. That could be a factor as well. I was running 250's, but you would think they would burn pretty much the same color? You won't be dissapointed with the bulbs no matter what ballast you run.
