    My light for the 29 finally got here, but the ballast was trashed in shipping by USPS. Anyone got a spare 150 watt MH ballast that they would let go cheap or loan me for a while until either the insurance pays me or i buy another??

    I have used the same brand from the beginning. Basically because they were the only ones available back then. They have worked well, not having anything to compare them to. I want to replace one of my MH's with a new electronic ballast and a different brand of bulb, to see how much they have...

    It's been forever since I posted in here but since I took over the buisness I've just not had enough time to dedicate to this tank. There are a bunch of nice things in this tank that are fairly expensive. I'd like to sell the whole thing to one person cause we all know that parting out a reef...

    Well, I'm starting to realize I made some big boo boos running my MH bulbs. I was running Hamilton 14k's much longer than I should have and then replaced them with XM10k's for about a month or so. Then I pulled them out and put my old Hamiltons back in there. What I'm realizing is I need to...

    Is anyone using the Icecap electronic ballast for 150 HQI applications? I'm looking to buy these, but want to know if they are designed around HQI. Most ballasts will light these bulbs, but few will run them as designed. My lighting system that I purchased, used ADVANCE e-visions electronic...

    One of my halide bulbs stopped working the other day. It was replaced 2 months ago so is still fairly new. Do they usually come with any kind of warranty? Or is that up to the reseller? It's a XM 10k 250w HQI I switched a working bulb with the bad one to verify that it is the bulb.

    I have a BB 120 that can be found here http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=746233&perpage=25&pagenumber=1 The problem is that the corals are getting lighter. I guess what I am trying to say they just do not have that metalic looking flesheeee color that I see in other tanks...

    I have 2 icecap electronic ballasts on my tank setup, and they are causing interference with the TV and DVD player. Bad enough to where when the tank lights are on, I cant watch tv or a dvd. I unfortunetly can't move the tank away due to my tiny apartment. Would going with a magnetic...

    What is best and where to buy? 175w only no other lighting over a 90g. Any high demand corals will be placed up high.

    what are the differences between an electronic and magnetic ballast. Is one better than the other or is it just preference. I see that the electronic ballasts are more pricey, but why?
