thats goin on the 29?
thats not overkill?
I would think that to eliminate heat issues on that shallow a tank you would be forced to increase the height substantially . . . thus essentially negating any benefits the extra 150watts would give
good luck with it
No, it's not going on a display tank. I am going to be using it on one of those pond tubs for SPS propagation.
If I did use it on a display tank, I would use it with somthing like a 70g Tall.
Just to give you all an idea of how large this thing is, here's a picture of it next to a 5g water jug.
hmm..seems like a reefneck joke coming up.
you know your a reefneck when...you use your wharf light during offseason on your reef tank.
Did you steal that from the rafters at Home Depot?
Nah, my father had to take one down from work place and He knew I had been eyeballing them so he gave it to me. He has about 50 or 60 of them in one building.
I bet the street light outside Travis's house is missing the light fixture. J/J
when you turn that baby on the light are gonna dim in your house. . .
He will be able to use the needle on his power meter for a fan! LOL
Is that M/H, or sodium vapor?
Gotham city needs its Batman signal back.
Good one Adrian!!!!! Seriously though, all in all, it should be an awesome light.
I've decided to ditch the reflector and run the ballast remote and use a Lumenac III, 19.5" x 19.5" x 8.5", for the reflector.
You got it fired up yet ? Should be an awesome light! 8)
I don't even have a bulbl for it yet
I should be able to start more work on the light and the tank, which it is to be used on, in late May or early June.
I was compariing light bulbs on Sanjay's Reef Lighting and the Hamilton 10k beat the pants off of every other bulb except the EVC 10k (only by a little), but I prefer Hamilton over EVC, so I will be going with the Hamilton.
Sweet! Keep us posted.
