    I understand PFO is out of business, which really sucks! However, I currently have the 72" LED solaris light and one of my power supplies has gone bad... can someone, anyone, give me some info on how or where to get this fixed or replaced. My step dad is fairly good with electronics, and he...

    There's an electronic ballast going for around $40 at the moment on ebay, apparently new and dual 175 watts. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=120234683147&Category=46314 It doesn't have a brand on it, but is there any way to tell if it is good, or if it would catch the...

    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...

    On my big tank I've got a 120 watt pc fixture. Which doesn't have a hanging fixture for it, so I've just got the bulbs setting on the glass top that came with the tank. I've been considering making a hangar for the lights, but if it's not going to give me too much more light I likely won't...

    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...

    I have 2 new 400 watt MH bulbs, but my probe start PFO ballast will not fire them. After talking with the retailer, they would probably work if I can get them to fire up on another 400 watt ballast for the first time. I think they require a little more demand on the first fire up. Does anyone...

    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...
