Where do you have your metal halide ballasts?

I have a PFO HQI ballast and it is large and heavy.

I have one in the floor next to the stand and the other one, which has no case, mounted to the wall inside the cabinet. Some day my house will look like this:campfire:

In the utility next to the fish sump room. I actually have a 6' x 12' room for my inwall tank but to keep heat down I put the ballast in the utility room next to the fish room.

I am trying to find a place for the ballast if I setup the 58G. It wont go in the stand and next to the tank will be the top off reservoir. May have to ditch the MH too. THis is not going to be worth I dont think

I have a current usa outer orbit and the ballasts are electronic and enclosed in the fixture nya nya!!

:lol:

I'd suggest putting them higher than the water level ...I saw a fellas last weekend and it had been wet due to a flood. Highly surprised it didn't burn his house down.
