120W Grande Bulb

I have my grande on a dimmer, but I was looking for expirment's sake to add some more heat on the top end.  I grabbed some 120W halogens, but it turns out that the bulbs are so large that they don't actually fit into the opening in the base for a bulb, they're too wide. I have looked all over but I can't find a surefire option for a more powerful bulb that would fit in the grande, does anyone have any ideas or links for an option? I'm willing to use heaters instead if that's my only option, it…See More

SLES Vs Magma Tower Surf

How would 70% SLES compare to MT surfactant in terms of the amount I have to use? I know the amount approximately to aim for of MT surf in a grande, but I ran out and bought some 70% SLES and I'm trying to gauge how much of it to add in it's place.Tonight I'm going to experiment adding about the same amount, but I'd like some input in case this fails, and I'll update if it does work.See More
