I have 4 brand new 03-actinics (NIB). I also have an older Coralife 36" marine fixture (2x96). PM me with an offer if interested. The bulbs are square pinned.

You should get one 10k and one Actinic for that fixture. Then you can do the dawn/dusk light schedule.

You can't. You would need a ballast that's rated for higher watts. Also.. you would need endcaps that would be rated for higher wattage as well.

That sounds like a fixture they made for FW. It should be fine for FO or FOWLR tank, though I would want more light (2 bulb fixture at least).

Send a message via MSN to JustOneMore20
Any chance you could sell the PC fixture? Then you would have some extra money for atleast a 4 bulb t5ho.

Sweet deal you got there!
