[APD] Re: Need guidance with DIY compact fluorescents.
I have a freshwater planted Eclipse 12 that I want to upgrade the lighting
for. I have been looking around, and can't find exactly what I want.
Custom Sealife has a retrofit but it only comes with a marine bulb, and AH
supply's kit doesn't work for me either because I would rather have a
single remote ballast that I can hide, instead of 2 big white
You can purchase a ventilated enclosure from Radio Shack (the
steel/aluminum one that is half silver and half black with vent slots on
the sides) and mount the two small ballasts in that to house them remotely.
I have a pair of 13w PCF lights set up this way (although I use them to
light several small tanks rather than one large one). The installation is
simply a matter of drilling a few holes in the enclosure to run the wires.
