They come with two plugs to independently control whites and blues on a timer. The transformers are built into these units so you need nothing from your old lights. The ballasts for fluorescent lights are totally different than the transformers for LED anyway as they use A/C rather than DC voltage to light the bulbs. Hanging these in the canopy is fine. LED bulbs have lenses to project the light only in the direction which you want rather than radiating it 360 degrees. I do not use a canopy with my lights and there is no light projected on the floor and very little on the wall behind the tank (the light is closer to the wall than it is the floor).That may work...three quick questions:
1. Can I put them on timers so the blues come on and go off separate from the whites?
2. Do I need new ballasts? I have two ballasts today for my 4 VHO bulbs, but may need three if I get three of them?
3. Can I hang these so they will sit within the canopy I have (tops of the canopy come off) to eliminate some of the glow?
