    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.

    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'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.

    I don't even have a bulbl for it yet :lol:

    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.
