Just remember you need to add another $79 to that to get a bulb appropriate for a marine tank.

An electronic ballast uses less energy, is alot lighter and runs much much cooler. It can also extend bulb life and fire more types of lamps than i standard magnetic ballast. Magnetic ballasts are big, hot and heavy! THey also use more power in the process.

try this metal halide combo

Dual 250 watt MH Ballast plus two sockets for $185. You can buy the bulbs elsewhere for about $70 each. I'm running two 400 watt MH ballasts, two 175 watt and one 250 watt ballast. They do NOT hum
