lights and ballast
I just installed my new Bright kit from AH Supply into an old plastic
Perfecto hood just like the one they show on their web pages. The hood goes

tubes. So, I ordered a ballast from Ultralux which I found on line. I

it when I get it. They say it will give me 15% brighter illumination, and
because it is a soft start, it won't shorten the life of the tubes. Does
anyone have any experience with this company's ballast?
I am looking for a reliable and inexpensive source for metal halide
systems and parts. I have the outer shade for MH lights. What I need is a
kit or parts from a supplier that gives me the socket, wire harnasses and
electronic ballast that I can install into my lovely, hanging, bell shaped,
aluminum shades. I'm looking at setting up 175 or 250 watt suspended lamps.
I prefer open top tanks because I like to see my floating plants from above
and don't want to mess with moving hoods and covers when I work with the
