    Some of you may already know, I purchased two new 400watt Reeflux 10K SE bulbs. I really want to run the Reeflux 10Ks. I have a PFO dual 400watt ballast (M59 standard). The bulbs would not work so I had them replaced with another new set. The retailer fired them at their store to make sure they...

    Check out those pics. Do you see any color difference? I hope so cuz I sure do. It would be one thing if it were slight but that is pretty drastic. The left side looks horribly yellow. This is the second set of 400w XM 10k's that I have tried with the exact same results. I have swapped the...

    Just wondering what your opinions are on Mh ballasts. I know that electronic is better than magnetic and HQI a much brighter. Is there a big bifference between manufactures? I always hear its all about the bulb and reflector. So I'm planning a dual 250 setup. I am for sure getting XM10k bulbs...

    I just purchased a dual hamilton magnetic ballast and I can't believe how loud this thing is. It drowns out all other noise and the loud hum is audible from all over the house. Is there a way to quiet these things down?

    I was wondering if anyone had any info or opinions on the PFO HQI vs the Standard PFO ballast? I was looking at this thread on RC and it show a par value jump of 698(standard)-936(HQI). It seems like the HQI ballast rocks. Thats almost a difference of 250 Par its like having a 20k bulb extra!(I...

    I've got a 72 gallon Bowfront Reef. I have 2x65watt actinic PCs and 2x55watt 10000k PCs. Just a few minutes ago I shorted it out somehow, so now only my actinics are working...but I'll worry about fixing it later. I was looking to upgrade my lights anyways... I'm currently housing an...

    Surely this question has been asked a thousand times, but I'm new here so bare with me. I'm building a 75 gal. reef and I would like for the lighting to be concealed in the canopy. I was told my best option would be a 250w compact florescent because of the size and heat (or lack there of)...

    Hi guys, This is one of my first posts on the board, but I just wanted to show you guys my new clam. He ia about 4 inches, and I picked him up at a great lfs in Dallas. It is rare to find a good LFS I think, but the owner is an sps and clam keeper as much as a store owner, so his livestock is...

    Hello everyone! OK, here's my situation... I'm trying to start up a tank. I was originally drawn to the hobby after reading that it was possible to keep an octopus in an aquarium. I purchased a few good books and soon realized how expensive a hobby this would become. So I put it off...
