That looks to be a 125W equivalent bulb (like 40w actual) right? If so then that should be fine but might encourage slightly slanted growth since it's at plant level.

What's the wattage on the MH and how far away is it presently? That will help us know if you should lower it.

Oh actually I can see the mogul base on it now that I enlarge the picture further.

Dude nice bulb, that thing is gonna be money for keeping the nodes tight during veg.

And yes, I would lower your MH another 9 inches to a foot (but keep an eye on the plants for sign of heat stress)

yea its a balance,
You can cool your light with an inline fan and some duct work. That would keep heat burn/stress to a minimum. Just move it around untill you find your happy median.
