    Hiep, luckily.. my wife support my hobby..she just doesnt know the cost of equipments or corals...haha

    I took my time on getting it set up, but that wasnt by choice. If it was up to me, it would have been completed a long time ago. But looking at it now, i'm glad i took my time.

    hows your little boy? bet he's all grown up..

    I apologize for late response and up date, work have been killing me lately.. here are some updates.

    I recently took down my Sfiligoi fixture and replaced the stock magnetic ballast with an Electronic ballast, in which i chose to use Lumatek Selectable 250 to 400 watts.

    transformers that i removed out of the fixtures.. total weight my be at least 20+ lbs.

    Here are the replacement Ballasts. Etremely happy with the selection. I was running 400watts on the stock fixture. I assumed that i would be running the same wattage after the swap. I set the ballast at 250 using Radium bulb, and to my surprise. At 250 watts, it was much brighter than the stock 400.

    Wow Ed...amazing attention to details in the build. I love the use of those cable trays. Makes all the cabling looks so neat.

    Good stuff man. Can't wait to see the tank mature.
