Re: [APD] Custom Sealife Britelite


Try Aquarium Hobbyist Supply (www.ahsupply.com). I bought a brite kit from them and had to use one of the ballasts for my Custom Sea Life hood. It was an exact replacement. You will need to telephone them for replacement ballasts. They don't list them on their web site. They are in Rochester, NY, USA.

Hi there ... haven't been here in a long while! I recognize a few names :-)
nice to see you.

I was wondering whether anyone here has had problems with the Britelite
burning out (about 5 years old). Took it apart, and tried supplying power
directly to the ballast to rule out wiring/etc ... I'm assuming it has to be
the ballast (obviously I know it's not the lamp ;-). The company is out of
business :-( and so I was looking for replacement ballasts (it's the 65
watt)... thought I'd check in here and see if anyone else had a similar
problem. Seems a shame to ditch the entire light strip for one ballast. Or,
if someone else has half working, maybe they'd like to sell half ;-)
Actually the strip itself is rusting and corroding on the side with the
filter output (wet spray/humidity) and I'm thinking of removing it and
putting it it in a home-made hood ... I had it sitting directly on the tank
with clamps on each side, front and back to prop it on the edge. Not a good

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
