In the good old days, there was plenty of magnesium in our water and soil so it was easy to take in enough through the diet. However, the mineral content of our soils has been severely depleted and we now drink bottled or softened water. In addition to that, we eat more processed foods and live in an age where we are constantly exposed to heavy metals and toxins. Even intense exercise, high protein diets, contraceptives, caffeine, alcohol, stress and sugar deplete levels of this crucial mineral.
Home lighting "design" often arises from: arbitrary allowance; (sub)minimum standards; personal want, not informed need; poor fundamentals of lighting design; limited forethought; contractor-styled installation; getting the certificate of occupancy; thoughtless grasping
A metal halide bulb life expectancy for aquarium use is estimated at approximately 6,000 man hours, according to the manufacturers specification literature, which dictates that the lamps will need to be changed-out at a very minimum of at least once a year. As the metal halide lamp ages and is constantly being turned on and off each day from regular use, it begins to lose its ability to hold an internal gaseous glow, until eventually completely failing to provide the correct spectrum of light, or completely burning out. Aging LED's do not exude these similar characteristics. An LED aquarium light fixture designed to replace metal halides, can provide up to 100,000 hours or more, making LED lighting a more practical choice.
There is really no need to make big changes if you own more traditional style lamps. It is a rawhide shade that is enhancing the rustic look and feel which is why professional decorators love designing with them. You can use rawhide with traditional lamps and achieve a very nice southwestern feel.
