FYI, these ballasts are Raw---Core & Coil ballasts with Capacitors. These are for DIY'ers.

Great prices! This is what you need, Steve. Grab a 175w and a 400w.

Im thinking about putting the Iwasaki's on my 600. The Par is crazy for such low wattage,kind of hard to pass that up. Im going to try 12- 54 watt T5's at first and see if I can live with that. If not then a setup like Lee is using with the Lumenbrights would be ideal.

Im up for trades also guys. Always looking for something bright to put into my Son's Nano or any softies for my big tank. Also I'm looking for a Nano chiller if anyone has got one collecting dust.

I may be interested. I am getting started, and don't know exactly what you you have. It may be more than what I need to get into right now.

If you have some DIY skills then these would be for you. If you are looking for plug and play then this is not what you want. For the money these are hard to beat, but you need to do some research and figure out what you want. If you need any help just LMK.

I can build cabinets, and have done some wiring, but don't really know about these aquarium lights. I am about to start building a stand and canopy for my 125, and want to build the lights into the canopy, but probably need to get something more complete to start out with. Sound like a great deal, though. From what I've seen in my research.
