This is what I did with that dead GE Ecolux after the Ballastar cooked it pretty good. These and other low mercury lamps show this effect much sooner than old full mercury lamps and energy saving lamps. The lamp above it is an older GE Watt-Miser that at one time had the red etch, which is now completely rubbed off.

Mercury migration always looks cool
What type of ballast is in that fixture?

Why, a Motorola two lamp T12 ballast of course. They seem to be the only electronic ballasts that do this with bad lamps, and most importantly don't care if the electrode is intact, severed or missing.

Interesting... I've got a few Motorola 2 lamp electronic's. Both lamps will do migration even if only one lamp is bad
