    I was just sitting on my computer while my lights came on for my tank. When they came on they all came on for a split second, but then the channel for the blue LEDs switched off.

    During a cleaning session I unplugged my ballast and must have pulled on the wires. The three wires going from the wiring harness side of the plugin that go to the halide fixture broke. I can rewire but do not know the orientation. There is 1 green, 1 white and 1 black wire. Can someone...

    I just got a replacement ballast for my T5 lighting. While I've wired up t5 ballasts before, the schematic for this one reads a little bit different (this isn't the actual diagram, just a very similar one I grabbed online): The circled part means that it doesn't matter which slot tubes 1 and 2...
