    Well I bought the fixture from canito today. All I can say is WOW. The shimmer is great. It's a Hamilton fixture with two super actinic blue T12's, two 175w MH and 1 center 250w MH. I may upgrade the T12's to T5's someday but they look fine to me. The pictures do not do it justice. Now I can get...

    Hello again, If I wanted to buy a VHO retro kit for my tank (48"x24"x24"), what size would I have to order. Let's suppose I'm getting it from PA. I'm not sure what the sizes they display represent: the tank size or the actual tube length. If it is tube length, then I'd have to order a...

    I have had my VHO lighting for almost a year now on my 90 gal. Icecap 660 ballast, 2 URI Super Actinic Blue bulbs & 2 URI white bulbs. I relocated in september, but the tank was only down for less than 1 week so the lighting has been in use the entire year. I always heard you should replace VHO...

    ....for my in-progress reef tank. tank is 60 gal. L40"x W16"x H20". I was thinking of lighting the tank with +/-300 watts. 2 - 96 watt full-spectrum compacts 2 - 55 watt 03 actinics. total 302 watts. didn't consider using MH, since this is somewhat a shallow tank and wouldn't want to BBQ...
